Chocolate Truffles Recipe

chocolate truffles recipe how to cook that

Is there a better gift than home made chocolate truffles? They cost you an arm and a leg at the chocolatiers and yet you can make them yourself for a fraction of the cost.

You will need your chosen truffle fillings (recipes below and demonstrated in the video) plus tempered chocolate for dipping the truffles.  If you chocolate is not in temper your truffles will be soft and melting at room temperature.  Please read this post first on what chocolate to use and how to temper chocolate.

300g (10.58 ounces) of tempered dark chocolate covered 20 truffles (6 of them in a mold and of the 14 cubes), with 90g (3.17 ounces) of chocolate left over (you need the extra so you have enough to dip the truffles).

If you make all of the fillings below you will make 71 truffles and will need 835g (29.45 ounces) of tempered chocolate for covering them.

    Ann, all the luster dusts I’ve found say either “Non Toxic” or “Not to be consummed – decorative use only”. What kind did you use for the gold?

    Hi Ann, I’ve just come accross your pages for these chocolates and I’m so excited to make them as gifts for friends and family over Christmas!! I was just wondering what sort of shelf life you think these typically have? I don’t really want to get too close to the big day before making them if I can help it! Thank you so much for your recipies, take care, Jason
