Write a review
  1. 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  2. 3 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
  3. 32 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped and divided
  4. 1/4 cup chopped freeze-dried raspberries
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons ground chipotle chile powder, divided
  6. 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  8. 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  9. 1/4 cup sparkling sugar
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cream and raspberry jam. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Place half of chocolate in a medium bowl, and pour hot cream mixture over chocolate, stirring gently, until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in freeze-dried raspberries, 1 teaspoon chipotle powder, salt, and cinnamon. Place chocolate mixture in an airtight container, and freeze until completely chilled and firm.
  2. Using a 1-inch spring-loaded scoop, scoop a small amount of chocolate mixture. Using hands, roll into 1-inch balls; place truffles on a baking sheet, and freeze for 1 hour.
  3. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine remaining chocolate and shortening, and microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted and smooth. Using wooden picks, dip each ball into melted chocolate, and place on a wire rack to dry. In a small bowl, combine sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder. Roll truffles in sugar mixture to coat.
