Truffle Chocolates

Truffles, the chocolate ones, just like their namesake, truffle, the fungus one, have become synonymous with luxury and decadent indulgence.

A truffle is ganache covered with tempered chocolate. ‘Ganache' is a mixture of melted chocolate and cream, tempered chocolate is chocolate that has been melted to a certain temperature, cooled to a certain temperature, then melted again. The ganache is formed into a ball and then dipped into the tempered chocolate. This gives it a hard covering that provides a crunch as you bite into the chocolate ball, while the ganache stays soft and silky in the centre.
