Coating

1
To make the truffles, place the caster sugar and glucose in a thick-bottomed pan
  • 400g of caster sugar
  • 400g of glucose
2
Place on a medium-high heat and stir until dissolved, then raise the temperature and cook until a deep golden brown colour
3
Add the cream and butter, taking care as it will splatter. Cook to 115°C, stirring continuously
  • 500g of double cream
  • 300g of butter, diced and chilled
4
Remove from the heat, allow to cool for 2-3 minutes, then stir in the peanut butter. Add the salt and mix well
5
Pour into a lined tray or plastic container, cover and place in the fridge until set - overnight will give best results
6
Once set, roll into 15g balls then roll in the chopped peanuts. Place back in the fridge to set and prepare the melted chocolate
  • 400g of peanuts, roasted, skinned and chopped
7
Once the truffles have set again, roll in the melted chocolate. Remove a little of the excess with your hands and drop them into the cocoa powder, one by one
8
Shake the truffles in the cocoa powder until covered and carefully transfer onto another tray. Repeat until all of the truffles are coated
9
Keep in a sealed box in the fridge until needed. 15 minutes before serving, remove from the fridge so the truffles can come up to room temperature
