For outer coating designs

You can use your imagination of how you want your truffles to look like. You can choose from a wide variety of options (almond nuts, hazelnuts, sprinkles, frosting, cocoa powder, and caramel drizzle, crushed chocolate bars, crushed while chocolate, cookies, dried fruits, and you name it!). You can be playful with the designs, just use your intuition which decorating materials you want to use here. If you need molding cups and trays, edible icing colors and other cute pre made decorations, you can start browsing these sites.

Ready to make your first truffles? Let’s start and don’t forget the apron. You just need to follow these 4 easy steps.

Prepare your ganache

Pre-heat heavy cream and once boiling, add you chocolate scrapes. The measurement depends on how much truffles you want to make. Just remember that the measurement of heavy cream and chocolate scrapes is 1 is to 1. Example, you have 500 grams of heavy cream so your chocolate scrape should be 500 grams as well. After mixing, place it on the fridge so it won’t be too runny when we start doing the coating. Easy right?

Prepare the coating

Mix white chocolate, dark chocolate and milk and slightly expose to heat until melted. Like ganache, the measurement is 1 is to 1. Let it cool but do not place it on the fridge.

Roll them into balls

Decide how big you want your truffles to be and roll your ganache and transform them into these fantastic balls. Place a grease paper on a tray or your work station and place your well-rounded truffles.

Coat your truffles

Use a fork to drain the excess coating. Place your truffle on top of the fork and drizzle them with your rich coating using a spoon. Place your coated truffles on grease paper

Here’s the best part! Designing time.

Be creative and don’t be afraid to make multiple designs. This part is the fun part, combine multiple designing materials to make the most daring pieces
