Transcript

  • 1. Making Valentine’s Day Chocolate Truffles
    Koolred DIY
  • 2. What do you need
    2 ½ bars (500 grams) of baking chocolate (each bar is approximately 200 grams).
    1 tub/ bar of cream cheese.
    Decorative toppings.
  • 3. Sweet, sweet indulgence…
    Making truffles are not only easy, they’re fun to make at home as
    well.
    Simply follow this easy guide to make these yummy treats that
    can be sent out on any occasion- be it Valentine’s Day, Mother’s
    Day or even a chocolate lover’s birthday.
  • 4. Break the chocolate to pieces
    Chop or break a chocolate bar (200 g) so that it melts more
    quickly and evenly.
  • 5. Melt the baking chocolate
    Once your chocolates are broken into pieces, use a microwave
    oven to melt them.
  • 6. Tip for microwaving chocolate
    Microwave at Medium temperature for 30 secs at a time,
    stirring after each heating. Keep doing this until the chocolate
    is melted and smooth when stirred.
    (Remember to put the chocolate in a
    microwave-safe container/ bowl)
  • 7. Beat the cream cheese
    Next, scoop the cream cheese and beat it with a mixer until its
    texture becomes creamy.
  • 8. Whisk away!
    Stir in the melted chocolate and whisk the content constantly
    until it begins to resemble a brown coloured cream.
  • 9. Take a rest.
    Now your mixture can go into the refrigerator while you wait for
    it to cool and firm. This process takes approximately an hour.
  • 10. One hour later…
    You can now remove the truffle mixture (expect a hard
    surfaced content). Scoop and shape the mixture into 30-32
    balls.
    The amount depends on how big you want your truffles to be.
    We suggest using a sorbet scoop or a melon baller to shape
    them into perfect balls.
  • 11. Roll your truffles into balls
    Quickly roll the mixture into balls and place them on a wax
    paper-covered tray.
    The mixture melts very quickly in the hands so you need to
    work fast. You can get a friend to help you with the rolling to
    expedite the process.
  • 12. Melt the remaining chocolate
    You can put your truffle balls in the refrigerator to firm up while
    you proceed to melt the remaining chocolate (1 ½ chocolate bars
    or 300 g).
  • 13. Dip truffles in melted choc
    Using two forks, dip the truffles into the melted chocolate.
    Do this with care as it can be rather tricky.
  • 14. Decorate your truffles
    Now you can decorate your truffles by sprinkling sugar
    decorations, cocoa powder, cinnamon, finely-crushed peanuts,
    etc.) .
    If you wish to coat your truffles entirely in cocoa powder, you can leave the decorating for after it’s hardened in the fridge (which is in our upcoming slides).
  • 15. Put your truffles back into the fridge
    Once again, refrigerate your truffles for yet another hour.
    When the time is up, your truffles would harden.
    You can also prepare some tiny cupcake cups to hold and
    make your truffles more presentable too.
  • 16. Savour your truffles
    If you’ve not decorated your truffles, coat them in cocoa
    powder. You are now ready to indulge in your homemade
    truffles. The outer shell should be hard while the inside
    (ganache) has a creamy and softer texture.
  • 17. Pack your truffles and give them to your Valentine…
    Now that you have your truffles ready, you can pack them into
    boxes. Candy boxes can easily be found at craft stores and are
    easy to put together. You can give these delicious chocolate
    truffles as a gift to your Valentine or loved ones… or have them
    yourself since you deserve it!
  • 18. From all of us at Koolred…
