So, I recently decided to become a self-taught chocolatier… ha! What was I thinking? It is way harder than I imagined. But I did come up with a shortcut or two.
For a simply sweet homemade truffle…
Just dig out your favorite fudge recipe! I’m serious. Fudge makes a great truffle!
Follow all the normal steps. The only thing you will do differently, is get the fudge out of the fridge before it becomes firm. You want it to still be a little soft so that you can roll it into balls.
After shaping the fudge into balls, roll them in your topping of choice such as powdered sugar, chopped nuts, or shredded coconut. You can also dip the balls of fudge in confectioners coating or tempered chocolate (if you’re feeling really domestic!)
For fun variations, use a white chocolate fudge recipe and flavor it with your favorite fruit extracts! You can even add a little food coloring to fancy them up!
Do this and your family will think you’re the best truffle maker in the world… they don’t need to know the truth.
