Method

1 In a medium pot, combine the cream, salt, and glucose and bring to a boil over medium heat.

2 Combine the invert sugar, pistachio paste, and chopped couverture. Pour the hot cream over the mixture and set aside undisturbed for 1 minute.

3 Using a spatula, stir in small circles at first, then gradually in wider circles to form a smooth, shiny ganache.

4 Cool to 90&F/32.2&C.

5 Blend in the butter and cocoa butter using an immersion blender. Cover with plastic wrap and let cool to 84&F/28.9&C.

6 When the mixture reaches the proper temperature, place in a pastry bag with a small hole cut in the tip and pipe into the shells. Let set overnight at room temperature.

7 Cap the truffles with the dark couverture once the ganache has completely set.

8 Coat the truffles in dark couverture by hand.

9 Before the couverture sets, roll the truffles in the ground pistachios to coat. Let set at room temperature.

10 Store in an airtight container at 57& to 61&F/13.9& to 16.1&C in a dark, dry place.
