Vampire Truffles Chronicles VI: Marius Truffles

Last but not Least Marius, The last Vampire on my "Vampire Chronicles Truffles Challenge". Marius was one of the oldest vampires on the book (until now) The keeper of the most important secrets on the Vampire world, It's also Armand's Maker. On his human life he was a 40 years old Italian man, book lover, Amazing Artist, very methodic, Sweet...

For the Truffle i choose some Italian Flavours, almost like a Mockaccino Truffle. a Creammy filling that combines perfectly with the Chocolate.

Dark Chocolate Truffle with Tiramisu filling


For the Ganache

9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
2/3 cup cream

For the Filling

3 tablespoon Cream Cheese
1 teaspoon Instant Cofee
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract


Place the cream in a small saucepan and scald it until bubbles being to appear around the sides of the pan. Pour the cream over the chocolate and allow it to soften and melt the chocolate for one minute.

Using a whisk, gently stir to incorporate the cream and chocolate. Stir until well-combined.

Cover the truffle mixture with cling wrap and allow it to cool to room temperature. Once cool, refrigerate until it is firm enough to spoon, about 2 hours.

Using a teaspoon or cookie dough scoop, form small 1-inch balls from the ganache and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ganache. Return to the refrigerator to chill for another hour.

Prepare the Tiramisu Filling, In a small bowl mix the Cream cheese, the coffee, the sugar and the vanilla until have a soft creammy mix.

Pour the Cream Cheese mix on a disposal plastic pastry bag. Open a little hole on the chocolate ball and fill each truffle with the mix.

Melt about 100 grams of Tempered White Chocolate and add your little chocolate Spheres on it, covering the whole ball.

Trust me, this Marius Truffles are like a cup of Italian coffe on a little ball. This is my last Truffle inspired on "The vampire Lestat" book I really wanna know what do you think about my truffles, about the book or abot the blog itself.. i really whant to know what you guys think about it
