Deep chocolate and luscious raspberries are paired in this delicious chocolate raspberry truffle recipe. The ganache filling of these truffles stays fairly soft, so they seem to melt in your mouth with each bite. This recipe calls for candy coating, which stays hard at room temperature. You can use real chocolate, but you will want to temper the chocolate so that these soft truffles have a hard outer shell. Like many truffle recipes, this recipe requires several extensive chilling periods, so be sure to plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time.
1. First, prepare the ganache. Place the chopped chocolate in a medium bowl, and set aside. Pour the heavy cream into a small saucepan over medium heat, and bring it to a simmer. 2. Once the cream is near boiling, pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and let it sit for one minute to soften the chocolate.
