What to Expect in Every Chocolate Truffles
The classic recipe of the chocolate truffles calls for the ganache which is often a mixture of heavy cream and bittersweet chocolate. This recipe is often changed and tweaked to meet the demands of the maker and the availability of fresh ingredients. To make the ganache, heavy cream is boiled and then pouring the hot cream over chocolate. This is then mixed and chilled to create a consistency desired. The mixture is then formed into small balls, not necessarily into perfect spheres and then dusted off with power or can also be dipped in chocolate coating.
As mentioned, the composition of the filling and the flavoring actually varies depending on the recipe. Some of the popular recipes often call for the use of fruit creams, caramel, nuts, marshmallows, and fudge as the main ingredients in the filling. There are some recipes of chocolate truffles that even called for liquor as one of the main ingredients. The ingredients and flavorings may vary, but the ultimate charm and appeal of these delicacies remain the same.
