Method

  1. Place the cream, puree and Tabasco® pepper sauce along with the butter and honey into a saucepan and slowly bring to the boil
  2. Once boiled, carefully whisk in the chocolate
  3. This will create a Ganache – a rich, shiny emulsified mixture which you can then pour back in to the bowl
  4. Clingfilm and place into the fridge
  5. Leave overnight to set
  6. When set, using a teaspoon or a melon baller, spoon little truffles out and roll into cocoa powder. Alternatively you can pipe these into little chocolate logs and then roll in cocoa powder.
