How To Make Decadent Chocolate Truffles

Making an elegant dessert doesn’t require baking. If you don’t have time to watch a soufflé bake or decorate a cake, some indulgent truffles will surely satisfy any sweet tooth. Ganache is a mixture of chocolate and cream that firms when it’s chilled – it is very soft at room temperature. This can be used as icing, in cakes, or as the base of truffles. Mix boiled cream into chopped chocolate and allow the cream to begin melting the chocolate before mixing them together. Be careful not to over mix and create air bubbles, but combine until there are no chocolate pieces left. If you want to add some flavor to your ganache, you can incorporate some vanilla extract, or even Bailey’s or rum. Once all the chocolate is melted, allow the ganache to chill in the fridge for about an hour or until it sets. Use a small melon baller to get uniformly sized truffles and then roll them between your hands to get an even sphere. You can roll the truffles in cocoa powder, sprinkles or even nuts. If you prefer a solid chocolate coating, you can use melted candy chocolate to dip the truffles and allow them to chill on wax paper until the chocolate sets. In this video, Chef Susie gives an online cooking lesson on how to make decadent chocolate truffles.
