Prank Chocolate Truffles

Filming this video was so much fun. Make your own prank chocolate truffles and watch the reactions of your friends as they eat them. With thanks to Draw with Jazza, Jayden Rodrigues and Jamie for being such good sports and eating the whole box.

Chilli V Raspberry Chocolate Truffles

chilli v raspberry sauce
To make raspberry chocolate truffles filling you will need:
135g (4.76 ounces) sugar
1 Tblpn glucose syrup
40ml water
1 Tblspn butter
2 Tblspn cream
200g (7.05 ounces) raspberries

Heat the sugar, glucose syrup and water in a pan until it just starts to brown. Add the butter, cream and raspberries. Stir well to combine then strain through a fine metal sieve to remove the seeds.

Note the chilli truffles only lasted a couple of days. After that the chilli started breaking down the chocolate, the sides of the truffles blistered and then collapsed. What does the chilli do to your insides?

  1. Hi Ann, you are very creative and I really like your ideas and recipes. In this post you mentioned soy sauce truffles and a video for making chocolate truffles with a liquid centre. Could you please post a link to this video? I really can’t find it. Thanks a lot!

  2. Hello. I really loved this idea. I’m planning on making these for my family.

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Ok Mal, But I suggest you warn them first!

  3. I’m planning on prancing my friends with this for a Christmas gift. Great idea!

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Ok but warn them first or you may end up on the ‘naughty’ list.

  4. Loved this idea. Great for family get-together at the holidays.

  5. This video made my day 🙂 I made some of the candies and they were awesome. The caramel one is the winner in my case with that salty pinch 🙂 looking forward for more such ideas!

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Thanks for the feedback Celine!

  6. Hi Ann,
    I tried your caramel to use in the caramel chocolates but it came out really brittle like toffee. Is there something I am doing wrong or do you have a different recipe to get a runny or gooey caramel?

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Natalie, It sounds like you may have taken the caramel too far (cooked it to long).

  7. Hi Ann! Thank you for always posting the most beautiful, funny, and charming videos! I am a long-time fan, and I especially love your chocolate tutorial videos. I have a big favor to ask! One of my favorite chocolates of all time are those liqueur-filled cordials (as they call them here in the USA). They have a liquid center (usually with some kind of alcohol like Grand Marnier), and around the liquid there is a delicate crispy sugar shell. The liquid-filled sugar shell is then dipped in chocolate. They are so delicious and very special! I would love to make them in assorted flavors to give away as gifts for the holidays this year. Would you be willing to help me out by giving them a try and making a tutorial video? Something tells me you could get them just right. I would be forever grateful! These are the instructions I was planning to follow, but I know there are probably more out there. Thank you so very much for all you do, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Thanks Heather for the lovely feedback!

  8. What kind of cream do you use? Is it like heavy cream?

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Tristian, This link may help: https://www.howtocookthat.net/public_html/cream-use/

      • Thank you and where do you get all of the ideas

        • Is there a difference between glucose syrup and light corn syrup?

          • Admin HowToCookThat

            Hi Tristan, They are basically the same.

        • Admin HowToCookThat

          Hi Tristan, Ann is constantly looking for and dreaming up new ideas. Sometimes the ideas come from suggestions from subscribers too!

  9. good video

  10. You kept a smile, or a squeence on my face throughout the entire video. lol I have made all your candies, yummmyyyyy

    • Admin HowToCookThat

  11. Ann! This is such a clever idea! We will have a fun time making these for my hubby’s birthday (he loves a good laugh!). I love you and your family! 

    • Ann

      Thanks Paula, will you warn him or will it be a surprise?

  12. This is great! I was just about to start looking for good youtube videos of chocolate with ganache and rasberry fillings, but was just going to watch your video first 😀 Good thing I did 😛
    Qestion though: what’s the difference between “Tblpn” and “Tblspn”? Do both of them mean tablespoon, or is the first teaspoon?

    • Ann

      hi, just a typo sorry, yes both tablespoon
