Beautiful! Do you have any tips for getting them to turn out so great?

Hi Ginny,

The tempering process is the tip for making truffles. The chocolate needs to be temper correctly, otherwise it won't come out smooth and shiny.

I use seeding technique for tempering. For dark chocolate, melt it to 115 degree F on bain marie, remove from heat and add 1/3 unmelted dark chocolate to cool and seed the melted dark chocolate to 90 degree F.

For white chocolate, melt it to 105 degree F, add 1/3 unmelted white chocolate to cool and seed the melted white chocolate to 85 degree F.
