Simple Chocolate Truffle Tutorial by claremanson Simple Chocolate Truffle Tutorial by claremanson
These truffles are lots of fun to make and to eat! Enjoy!

Some countries it would seem do not have double cream (called heavy cream in the USA) i am unfamiliar with what alternatives there maybe to your country in particular, this Wiki article on cream might be of some use to you in working out what your closest alternative maybe en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cream

I tried this recipe since it seemed so simple and I had leftover cream, and I'm happy with my first try! I used an extra 50ml of cream and it did make them very squishy and melty to work with, but it made over 25 truffles and they're fine if eaten from the fridge. I used a bit of peppermint flavouring and coated them in blue sugar. I also tried coating some in dried cranberries, yum! You can see my results here: [link]

Thanks for the recipe! =)

Since Valentine's day is coming up I was thinking about making chocolate truffles for my significant other. This tutorial is perfect and I can't wait to try it out, and hopefully not fail.

i've made these twice now and both times they've come out really soft. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

less cream will do it, try 65-75g instead. Think of it like chocolate, once you melt it and it hardens again it goes back to being solid so the more cream you add the softer it will be after it re sets.

do you know the proper conversions to american measurements? i used about 2/3 a cup of cream in this last batch, which is about right for my ratio to just use a full 340 g bag of chips.

no i don't sorry, in cups i would say 1/2 or even 1/3 if it is really, really soft!

also, learned through mistakes experimentation, too little cream makes really good fudge~

I'm going to make these for my going away party. I'm going to put little faces on them. Or hats. Moustaches, maybe.

i'm lactose intolerant. can i still use the cream without it making me sick? or is there something else i can use?
Reply
:iconclaremanson:
claremanson Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
you will have to another alternative as cream is pure dairy. in my country you can get lactofree cream or soya cream so if you have that avaible that would be the best alternative.
