I need to make desserts for next week Sunday for my daughter's school choir dessert auction. One of them is going to be raspberry truffles, and I wondered how far in advance I can make them and how to store them. I bought the raspberries last night because the store doesn't always have them, and want to make them soon-ish before the berries go bad. My recipe is very simple, but will factor in to the shelf life of the truffles.
Ganache: 1 part heavy cream, 2 parts semi-sweet baking chocolate
Fill fresh raspberries with pea-sized balls of soft chevre and one tiny piece white chocolate. I have store-bought chocolate shells that look like empty Reese's cups to put the raspberries in, one per shell. Top with a few drops of honey. Fill with ganache. Chill until set.
(If the shells don't work, the plan is to put a little ganache into paper mini-muffin liners, then put in the raspberries, and cover with more ganache.)
So, how long will they keep? In the fridge or sealed up on the counter? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've made these once before, but on the day they were given as a gift, so have no clue about the best way to store them.
