Ingredients
  • Jelly Confection:
  • 8 ounces strawberry jam
  • 8 ounces liquid pectin
  • Roasted Peanut Milk Chocolate Ganache:
  • 8 ounces dry roasted peanuts
  • 4 ounces agave syrup
  • 2 ounces heavy cream
  • 1/2 ounce milk chocolate
  • Curds and Whey:
  • 3/4 ounces heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Fresh cheese curds, for garnish
  • Vanilla syrup, for drizzling
Directions

For the jelly confection: In a 1-quart saucepan, heat the strawberry jam and liquid pectin together until smooth and lump free. Place the strawberry and pectin mixture into twelve 2-ounce candy molds and cool.

For the ganache: In a coffee grinder, combine the peanuts and agave syrup and process into a slightly coarse texture. Place the peanut mixture into a small microwaveable dish. Add the milk chocolate and heavy cream and microwave until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour the mixture on top of the strawberry jelly in the candy mold. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove from the candy molds and serve.

For the curds and whey: Mix the heavy cream and sugar together. Scoop the mixture into a ceramic spoon. Garnish with fresh cheese curds. Drizzle with vanilla syrup. Serve alongside the candy molds.
