Maple Ganache:

2 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped

2 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped 

1/4 cup heavy cream 

1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

2 tablespoons Grade B maple syrup 

Liquid Truffle:

10 ounces half-and-half

Smoked salt, such as Mountain Rose Herb's Applewood Smoked Salt 


  1. Make the maple ganache: Place the chocolates in a medium heat-safe bowl. Bring the cream, butter and maple syrup to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour the boiling cream-maple mixture over the chopped chocolate and set aside for 2 minutes. Then use a whisk or immersion blender to blend the chocolate mixture until smooth.
  2. Make the liquid truffle: Transfer the maple ganache and half-and-half to the saucepan and set it over medium-low heat. Whisk constantly until the mixture comes to a simmer. Turn off the heat and pour small servings into espresso cups, then sprinkle with the smoked salt before serving.
