Recipe 101: Chocolate Truffles!

 I am a certified chocolate lover! Hershey, M&M'S, Sneakers, chocolate cakes, cupcakes etc.. here's the 3 easy steps recipe for one of my favorite chocolate desserts " Chocolate Truffles ".


chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate or cocoa powder, usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape. Other fillings may replace the ganache: cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, almonds, berries, or other assorted sweet fruits, nougat, fudge, or toffee, mint, chocolate chips, marshmallow, and, popularly, liqueur.


The chocolate truffle was first created by M. Dufour in ChambĂ©ry, France in December 1895. They reached a wider public with the establishment of the Prestat chocolate shop in London by Antoine Dufour in 1902, which still sells 'Napoleon III' truffles to the original recipe. There are now three main types of chocolate truffles: American, European, and Swiss:





Ingredients: 



  • cooking spray
  • 12 ounces milk chocolate
  • 1/3 cup light cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening


Directions: 


First Cover a baking sheet with wax paper, and spray paper with nonstick cooking spray. Melt milk chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Stir in the cream and vanilla. Spoon tablespoon-sized scoops of the chocolate mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 30 minutes.


Second Melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in shortening.


Third Roll each piece of chilled chocolate into a ball. Use a spoon to dip chocolate balls into the melted chocolate chip mixture. Return truffles to baking sheet, and chill until firm. 


With those three easy steps im sure you can make a delicious Chocolate truffles♥!
