Ingredients

  • 1/2 oz freeze dried pineapple (14 g)
  • 2 oz white chocolate melting wafers (57 g)
  • 1 oz heavy cream (28 g)
  • 4 oz dark chocolate (142 g)

Instructions

  • Process freeze dried pineapple in a food processor into a powder.
  • Add white chocolate and cream in a heat proof bowl and microwave for 20 - 25 second and stir until smooth.
  • Add pineapple powder to the ganache mixture and mix until combined. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Melt half of the dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a simmering pot of water. When the chocolate is almost completely melted, take the bowl off the heat and stir until completely melted and smooth.
  • Add about a scant 1/2 teaspoon to each cavity of the pineapple candy mold. Use the measuring spoon to push the melted chocolate around to cover all surfaces, nooks and crannies with a thin layer of chocolate.
  • Let the chocolate set for 5 minutes in the freezer.
  • Add the pineapple ganache mixture to a piping bag, cut off the tip.
  • Take the pineapple candy mold out of the freezer and pipe the ganache mixture into the chocolate shells, leaving enough space at the top for another layer of dark chocolate.
  • Add about 1/2 teaspoon of melted dark chocolate over the ganache to cover it. Tap the mold on the counter to even out the new layer of chocolate.
  • Let set in the freezer for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Take the candy mold out of the freezer and remove the truffles.
  • Melt the rest of the dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a simmering pot of water and repeat the process to form the rest of the truffles.

Notes

I used 66% cocoa chocolate wafer for the outer chocolate layer.
