Sake Flavored Homemade Chocolates For Valentines Day

ochikeron's picture
Fresh chocolate is made with chocolate and fresh cream. It is so simple that it is the most popular handmade chocolate in Japan. Mostly, it is flavored with rum but in my recipe I used Sake! hehe I hope you like this idea but of course you can skip sake ;P
Directions

MAKING
1. Melt the chocolate and heavy cream in a double boiler over hot water (60C/140F).
2. Remove from the hot water, using a whisk or spatula, mix until creamy.
3. If you like, add butter and sake (any liqueur) and mix lightly.
4. Line the truffle box (or origami box) with a plastic wrap and fill the chocolate mixture. Smooth the surface and put in a fridge until firm (about an hour or two).

SERVING
5. When the chocolate is firm, cut into small square pieces, dust with cocoa powder, and put them back in the origami box lined with a bento cup or a muffin cup.

NOTE
Ginjo Sake means premium sake. Ginjo is the grade. Junmai Ginjo is the highest grade! Don't use sake for cooking. It is non premium sake with some salt added.
Please see the video for the origami box instructions.

These are ganache, melty creamed chocolates. Since there is no Christmas nor Easter chocolates in Japan, these are all for Valentine! These square chocolates resemble small cake like brownies. These fresh chocolates simply melt in your mouth and are amazingly addictive. The sake flavoring adds to the creamy bitter taste. These are very light in sugar. Really delicious like those from the best chocolatiers? No, much better! You can decorate them however you like! With snow; icing sugar. Girly; with sweet pot
