Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

I used to make a lot of chocolate truffles once upon a time. I don't know when I stopped... but then I saw this recipe in Cooking More by Tarala Dalal and I thought of making truffles again.

This morning I was chatting with Itchy and she asked, do the insides of these truffles turn soft, and I said not as soft as shop-bought truffles but I will have to eat my words here... N says it's as good as branded chocolate. In fact I didn't tell him that I made them, and gave one to him and only after he said wow, it's just melting in the mouth, I told him I made it :D

And another reason I am proud of myself is that I didn't eat these! :) :)

Ok, drooling over and now the recipe :D

Ingredients

Milk chocolate
400 gm
Dark chocolate
200 gm
Fresh cream
200 ml
Desiccated coconut
50 gm

Steps

  1. Grate 200 gm milk chocolate and 200 gm dark chocolate.
  2. Bring cream to boil and take it off the stove.
  3. Add both the grated chocolates and whisk gently till mixed.
  4. Refrigerate for 1 hr, stirring every 15 min.
  5. Take out the mix and make small balls by rolling it in your hands. You can moisten your hand with a very little water if the mixture sticks but remember very wet hands can make the balls too soft.

  6. Melt the rest of the milk chocolate using a double boiler or in microwave. I melted it in the microwave. In case u do the same remember never to melt chocolate on high, always on medium around 450W. Stir it at 1 min intervals till it's melted and a little shiny.

  7. Chocolate Truffles
  8. Dip the previously rolled balls in this melted chocolate and leave it to chill for 10 min in the refrigerator.
  9. Roll the cooled balls in desiccated coconut... and go eat!
  10. For the outer coating u can also use cocoa powder, sweet candies and nuts. If u use these coatings, roll the balls in them before chilling but after the coating is semi-set.
