Melt in Your Mouth No-bake Truffles

Melt in Your Mouth No-bake Truffles

This is a creamy chocolate that melts in your mouth. The key is mizuame and butter. If you add too little, then everything is totally different. It tastes better than store-bought chocolate!

Ingredients: 10 x 10 cm square

A) Chocolate
70 g
A) Fresh Cream
35 g
A) Mizuame (potato syrup)
6 g
A) Unsalted Butter
5 g
Rum, Brandy
1/2 teaspoon each
Cocoa powder
enough to cover the top


1. Put all of A's ingredient in a heatable container
2. Microwave for 1 minute (700W) to warm and melt the ingredients. Be careful not to overheat.
3. Mix until smooth, and then add rum and brandy. (Try not to mix in too much air)
4. Line a square box with parchment paper, and pour in Step 3. Refrigerate for at least half a day.
5. Sprinkle the top with cacao powder, and take it out of the mold with the parchment paper.
6. Also sprinkle the other side with cocoa powder.
7. Cut the chocolate with a knife or string. If using string, use both hands and cut in a sawing motion.
8. It might help if you prop it up. I turned the mold upside down, and used that.
9. Also coat the cut sides with cocoa too. All done!
10. This time, I will send this to my sister who really likes (is addicted to?) chocolate.
11. You can also wait for the chocolate to cool a little, pipe it, and then refrigerate as normal.
12. For truffles, use 10 g less cream. Once the chocolate is firm, shape into a ball, and coat with cacao powder. To make it easier to pour, it's okay to add 10-15g more of cream. Give as gifts!

Story Behind this Recipe

Every year, I make this for my chocolate loving (addicted) sister as a winter gift. I always use 3 times the amount of alcohol that the recipe says (I love chocolate and alcohol). My kids also love it, too.
