We are psyched when chefs and food makers turn to our salt for their creations and especially so when they were one of our favorite restaurants or brands before being a client. Blue Point Brewing Company, a bit up island from us on Long Island, was our go-to beer for years. Amagansett Sea Salt has become Blue Point's go-to salt for a variety of their beers and ales (try their Beach Plum Gose, Seaweed IPA, Mexican-style Lager and Oyster Stout). We were thrilled when they asked for some of our salt for truffles they were making to mark World Chocolate Day (July 7th of each year). Super easy and super delicious, here is Blue Point Brewing Company's recipe for Oyster Stout Chocolate Truffles with Amagansett Sea Salt. Enjoy!

Amagansett Salted Oyster Stout Chocolate Truffles

IngredientsBlue Point Truffle
  • 1 cup Blue Point Oyster Stout
  • 16 oz Dark Chocolate
  • Amagansett Sea Salt
Instructions

Add the beer to a pot on high heat and reduce by half. Make sure you stir that sucker a lot. Remove pot from heat and mix in 8 of the 16 ounces of dark chocolate until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until firm.

Once set (about 2 hours), scoop out a small amount with a spoon and roll into balls with your hands. Place on parchment paper and chill for 30 minutes.

Now for the coating: melt the remaining 8 ounces of chocolate in the microwave for 30 second intervals until fully melted and smooth.

Dip the chocolate balls in the coating and roll around with a fork until fully coated. Remove and place on parchment paper. Sprinkle some Amagansett Sea Salt on there and wait for everyone to be impressed with your creation.
