Koolred DIY: Valentine's Day Truffles

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