Step 1: Making the Chocolate Ganache

To make this indulgent recipe of Champagne Truffle Squares, we will start by making the chocolate ganache. To ensure the perfect consistency, we will need to heat up heavy cream (1 cup) until it comes to a simmer. Then, take it off the heat and mix in semisweet chocolate (8 oz) until it is fully melted and combined.

Step 2: Adding Champagne to Chocolate Ganache

To create the champagne truffle flavor profile, we will add in champagne (1/4 cup) to the ganache. Use your preferred type of champagne; I like a sparkling wine or pink champagne. Incorporate well so that it blends into the ganache without separating.

Step 3: Refrigerating Ganache

Next, let the mixture sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before covering with cling wrap and refrigerating for about an hour until it becomes firm.

Step 4: Making the Truffle Squares

Cutting out squares from the ganache can be done using a melon baller or small cookie scoop measure. Take a firm scoop of ganache and gently form it into squares with your hands. Assemble them onto a tray lined with parchment paper and then refrigerate again for 20 minutes until they are more solid.

Step 5: Coating Truffle Squares

Once they have hardened, melt dark chocolate (8 oz) over low heat on the hob, or use a double boiler instead if preferred. Take each square truffle and dip it into melted chocolate to coat all sides evenly. After dipping, carefully place each square back onto parchment paper and let them rest until completely dried.

Step 6: Decorating Finished Truffles

Now comes the fun part— decorating! You can style your Champagne Truffle Squares a few different ways. You can sprinkle some cocoa powder over the top of each chocolate square, or place a drizzle of melted white chocolate on them.

Another way to enhance the champagne flavor is by rolling the truffles in chopped hazelnuts or pecans. For a more elegant appearance, consider using gold leaf or fresh strawberries on top.

Step 7: Finishing Touches

Refrigerate the truffles for another 20 minutes until they are completely set. Then you are ready to indulge in your own handcrafted, elegant Champagne Truffle Squares. These heavenly treats are perfect for any special occasion or even as a thoughtful homemade gift for someone special.

1. Chocolate: While this recipe calls for a mix of semisweet, milk, and white chocolate, feel free to use your favorite type of chocolate or even a combination of two. Dark chocolate would work well with champagne too, adding an intense bitterness to the sweetness of the dessert.

2. Champagne: If you don’t have champagne on hand, you can substitute it for another sparkling wine like prosecco or cava, or even a non-alcoholic sparkling drink for the kids.

3. Flavors: Want to add some fruity notes to the chocolatey goodness? Add a teaspoon of fruit puree such as strawberry, raspberry or blackcurrant in the truffle filling. You could also sprinkle some gold leaf on top of each square or replace it with sprinkles for a fun and festive touch.

4. Topping: Drizzle caramel sauce over your truffle squares for an added layer of indulgence. Alternatively, coat them in cocoa powder or dust with powdered sugar instead of dipping them in melted chocolate.

Once you’ve made these delectable champagne truffle squares, you may be wondering how best to store them. Fret not, dear reader, for I have some tips for you.

If your truffle squares have been coated in cocoa powder, they will keep well in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. Just make sure to keep them away from any heat sources to prevent melting, and store them in a cool, dry place.

For truffle squares that have been coated in chocolate or chopped nuts, it’s best to store them in the refrigerator. Place them in an airtight container with parchment paper lining between the layers to prevent sticking. They will keep well for up to two weeks in the fridge.

If you want to freeze your truffle squares, simply place them in an airtight container with parchment paper between the layers and freeze for up to three months. When ready to enjoy, let them thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.

To reheat your truffle squares, it’s best to do so gradually. Allow them to come to room temperature for about 10-15 minutes before reheating in a low oven (300°F) or microwave on low power until warmed through.

With these tips, your champagne truffle squares will be just as delicious days or even weeks later as they were when you first made them.

Tips for Perfect Results

To ensure that these Champagne Truffle Squares come out perfectly every time, follow these tips.

First, it is important to use good quality chocolate to get the best flavor. I recommend using a mix of dark and milk chocolate for a well-balanced flavor, but you can also adjust the ratio based on your preferences.

When melting the chocolate, make sure to do it slowly and evenly to prevent burning. Use a double boiler or microwave in short intervals while stirring frequently. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate as it will become grainy and unusable.

For the ganache, make sure it is firm enough to scoop into squares but not too hard that it becomes difficult to cut. Refrigerate the ganache for at least an hour or until firm before creating squares.

When cutting the squares, use a sharp knife dipped in hot water for clean lines. Wipe off any excess water before cutting into the ganache.

For an additional touch of luxury, consider decorating your Champagne Truffle Squares with edible gold leaf, strawberry slices, or dusting with cocoa powder.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to experiment with different types of champagne or sparkling wine to give your recipe a unique twist. Pink champagne and white chocolate truffles are great options if you want to switch things up from traditional dark chocolate champagne truffles.

With these tips in mind, you can create a flawless batch of Champagne Truffle Squares that will impress your guests and satisfy your sweet tooth.

What is champagne truffle made of?

If you are looking for a unique and impressive dessert to serve at your next gathering, consider making champagne truffles. These delectable treats are crafted from bittersweet chocolate, cream, brandy, and of course, sparkling wine, resulting in a burst of flavor that will leave your guests wanting more. Not only are they a perfect addition to any dessert spread, but they also make for a great talking point at cocktail parties.

How much champagne is in a champagne truffle?

The champagne has a low alcohol content of 3 percent.

How long can you keep champagne truffles?

To ensure the freshness of your champagne truffles, it is advisable to keep them in a sealed container inside the fridge for a duration of one to two weeks. Alternatively, if you intend to store them for an extended period, say two months, it is best to keep them in the freezer. In some cases, the truffle ganache may become too hard after refrigeration, and if that happens, you can return it to room temperature for a few minutes to make it easier to scoop.

Do champagne truffles have alcohol in them?

When it comes to milk chocolate, the main ingredients are cocoa solids, sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, soya lecithin, and natural vanilla flavoring. Additionally, it may contain ingredients like cream, glucose syrup, and butter along with Marc de Champagne, which gives it a hint of alcohol. One should note that it contains alcohol and may cause an adverse reaction for those with sensitivity.
