Since Assam tea has an earthy flavor, you probably wouldn’t expect to find it in a chocolate recipe. But it actually lends a robust taste to these truffles. ~ Alan
Assam Chocolate Truffles
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 2-3 tsp Classic Assam tea
- 1 1/3 cups Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 Tbls Butter
Steep loose tea in milk overnight (at least 8 hours), then strain out the loose tea.
Heat milk and butter to steaming (not quite to a boil). Pour hot milk over chocolate and stir until smooth. You may need to place the bowl over simmering water (like a double boiler), stirring until all lumps are gone and mixture is silky smooth.
Cool in bowl in the refrigerator until firm.
Form into small balls of chocolate, then roll in cocoa powder, crushed nuts, etc. Place in covered container and chill until ready to eat.
