Preparation steps

1.

Slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Pour the heavy cream into a saucepan and add the vanilla bean seeds, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, and star anise. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, cover and let steep for about 30 minutes. 

2.

Strain the cream through a fine mesh sieve. Chop the milk and dark chocolate and set aside 200 g of the dark chocolate. Combine the rest in a heatproof bowl. Bring the cream back to a simmer and pour over the chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 5 hours. Cut the softened butter into small pieces and gradually stir into the cooled chocolate cream. Transfer the chocolate cream to a piping bag with a large, round tip and pipe into small mounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator, then quickly roll into balls using your hands.

Melt the reserved dark chocolate in a double boiler, coat each truffle in the melted chocolate then roll in cocoa powder. Store the truffles in the refrigerator.
