Serves: 30 pieces
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Difficulty level: Easy
Cost: Quite expensive
- 5 large tangerines
- 150 ml fresh tangerine juice
- 150 gr. sugar
- 150 gr. chopped walnuts
- 20 gr. cocoa
- 50 gr. breadcrumbs
For the icing
- 400 gr. couverture
Grind the walnuts moderately.
Wash the tangerines well.
Squeeze them and extract their juice.
Then we remove their skins, grind them in the mixer and put them in a saucepan with the sugar and juice to boil over medium heat.
Stir from time to time with a wooden spoon.
Let them boil well, until it becomes like a tight jam and our mixture for chocolates with walnuts comes off the pot, for about 10 minutes.
Let the mixture cool a bit.
Add the ground walnuts, breadcrumbs and cocoa.
We mix them with a spoon. After the mixture has cooled and we can shape it, we take a piece the size of a walnut and shape it into a ball or stick or whatever shape we want. Every time, before we take a piece of the mixture, we dip our fingers in the cognac.
Lay out the balls on a greased tray or parchment paper, and let them dry well.
Melt the chopped chocolate in a bain-marie.
One by one, drop the balls carefully into the bain-marie in the melted chocolate.
Take them out of the bain-marie using a fork and spoon.
Put them on a greased tray (or on parchment paper).
Let the chocolate dry and harden.
Keep them in an airtight utensil in the refrigerator. Enjoy!!
