Asian soup dumplings are popping up with increased popularity. Try making a sweet version using your favorite Luker Chocolate!
Soup dumplings are a great culinary adventure that gives the most exciting splash of flavors when you bite into one. The key is in the dumpling filling, it has to be solid when assembled and liquid once steamed. After thinking about these savory little flavor explosions I thought, why not fill one with ganache?
To make your dumpling dough with the most desirable texture, be sure to use boiling water when mixing. Just be careful to use a wooden spoon or chopsticks, as it will be too hot to handle at first. Once you have your dough, ready roll out each dumpling with a thin rolling pin and pivoting around the center to achieve a round dumpling.
For your filling, make a 1:1 ratio of ganache using your Luker Chocolate of choice. Pour into a parchment lined pan and freeze. Once frozen, cut into small cubes, approximately 1" x 1" and wrap your dumpling dough around the ganache. Steam and enjoy your ooey gooey chocolatey dumpling!
