Preparation steps


For the truffles, peel the ginger and grate finely. Chop both of the chocolates and mix with the ginger in a bowl. Bring the cream to a boil, pour over the chopped chocolate and melt while stirring. Gradually stir in the Cognac. Set the mixture aside to cool for at least 5 hours. Cut the butter into small pieces and stir gradually into the chocolate cream. Spoon into a piping bag with a large round tip and pipe balls of the truffle mixture onto parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until cold, then roll each ball between the palms quickly to make a smooth, even shape.


To decorate, chop the chocolate and melt over a hot (not boiling) water bath. Remove from the heat and let cool to lukewarm. Using a chocolate dipping fork, dip the truffles into the chocolate, drain, garnish with candied ginger and leave to dry on a wire rack. Once fully set, arrange the chocolates on a plate and serve.
