Ingredients ½ cup Heavy Cream 1 tbsp Dried Lavender Flowers 3 tbsp PLANET BEE HONEY 2 cups Milk Chocolate, pieces or chopped 2 cups Milk or White Chocolate, pieces or chopped Lavender Flowers for Garnish Directions Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Combine the cream and lavender flowers in a two-quart saucepan. Heat nearly to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover, and allow to steep for five minutes. Strain the cream into a clean two-quart saucepan using a fine-mesh strainer. Press down well on the lavender to extract all the liquid possible. Add the honey to the flavored cream and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat. Add and chopped milk chocolate or pistoles to the cream and stir until smooth and homogeneous. Pour the finished ganache into the baking pan to make a thin layer, and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for one hour or more until the ganache is firm. Put the ganache in a mixer bowl and mix on medium speed using a paddle attachment for 30 seconds. Or stir vigorously in a mixing bowl by hand, using a spatula. Allow the ganache to rest at room temperature for five minutes. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Using a #100 scoop or a spoon, scoop out balls of ganache and place on the sheet pan at room temperature. When all of the ganache has been scooped, roll each portion by hand into a round ball. Melt and temper the chocolate for dipping. If using compound coating, follow the heating instructions on the package. Dip the ganache centers in the tempered chocolate or compound coating. Let set, then repeat for a second coat. Garnish each truffle with three dried lavender flowers after the second coat of chocolate. Save the Date
