Guinness Oreo Truffles : no bake, reduced dark Irish dry stout with semi sweet chocolate truffles are your favourite St. Patrick’s treat this year !
The essence of every truffles dessert recipe is the concentrated flavour you add so every bite shows the basic ingredient. Guinness Oreo Truffles are not an exception to this rule. The main ingredient is beautiful dark Irish dry stout, reduced. It emphasizes beautiful Guinness bitterness combined with semi sweet high quality chocolate. Oreo cookies powder’s role is to make the mixture thicker and it does not overpower the main flavours at all.
Of course, Golden Oreos or any other type of biscuits were not an option not because of pale colour but intense vanilla flavour.
To get exact quantity of reduced stout, you may have to check the quantity while reducing ; just pour it into measuring cup to check how far you’ve gone 😊
If you reduce Guinness in wide, large pan, you definitely speed the process up and it takes 13 minutes only.
Guinness Oreo Truffles
Guinness Oreo Truffles : no bake, reduced dark Irish dry stout with semi sweet chocolate truffles are your favourite St. Patrick's treat this year !
- ½ cup Guinness beer
- ¾ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- Pinch of salt
- 5 Tbsp heavy cream
- 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 Tbsp corn starch
- 3 Tbsp Black Oreo cookies powder
- 3 Tbsp bitter cocoa powder
Pour Guinness into shallow pan and bring to boil on low heat. Reduce to have ¼ cup. For me, it took 13 minutes since the dish was quite large.
In a medium sized pan, combine heavy cream, corn starch and chocolate chips. Stir with spatula on low heat until chocolate is melted completely. Add reduced beer. Combine to have creamy texture.
Take away from the heat and add Oreo cookies powder. Incorporate well.
Cover tightly with transparent foil and cool completely. It needs about 2 -3 hours but I left it overnight in the fridge for the best results.
Pour cocoa powder into a shallow bowl.
Scoop little balls of cream using tea spoon.
Roll between palms to make it round and roll into cocoa powder.
Put each truffle on a tray and refrigerate until serving.
