Ingredients
  

  • 8 oz good-quality, semi-sweet chocolate (50-60% cacao)
  • 7 oz heavy whipping cream
  • 1 oz freeze-dried strawberries finely crushed

Instructions
 

  • Chop the chocolate into 1/4 inch chunks and place in a bowl.
  • In a saucepan, warm the cream over medium heat, just until it begins to gently simmer.
  • Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate, let stand for 1 minute, then stir until you have a smooth and shiny ganache.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight), until well chilled and firm.
  • Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the ganache into 20 truffles, then roll each into a ball.
  • Coat each truffle in the crushed freeze-dried strawberries, wait 10 minutes, then coat them again.
  • Store the truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3-6 months.
