William Curley’s Maple Praline Truffles

Ambassador / Desserts / Desserts / Sweet Treats



For the ganache:

  • 255g cream
  • 380g dark chocolate
  • 120g gianduja milk chocolate
  • 60g salted butter
  • 200ml pure maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 150g praline paste
  • Pinch of sea salt

Other ingredients needed:

  • 400g chocolate, to temper 
  • Maple flakes, to decorate 


  1. Chop the butter into small pieces and allow it to soften at room temperature.
  2. Chop up the dark chocolate and gianduja milk chocolate, then place into a metal bowl.
  3. Boil your cream in a saucepan. Once boiled, pour this over the chocolate and mix until it starts to come together.
  4. Boil your maple syrup, and then pour into the cream and chocolate mixture. Mix continuously until it forms a silky emulsion.
  5. Add the praline paste and sea salt and mix well.
  6. Add the softened butter and mix until fully combined.
  7. Leave to cool for approximately one hour. While setting, prepare a tray lined with non-stick paper.
  8. Once your ganache starts to firm, add it to a piping bag. Pipe bulbs onto the lined tray to make your truffles. This recipe makes approximately 50 truffles. Allow to set fully, for approximately 30 minutes.
  9. Prepare a second tray lined with non-stick paper.
  10. Temper the separate dark chocolate, then dip each truffle into the chocolate, place on the clean tray and immediately sprinkle with maple flakes. Allow to set for 10-15 minutes and enjoy!

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
