Truffles Recipe
(No Tempering Required)

These incredibly easy to make truffles may just be the best tasting chocolate creation EVER invented. Everyone who has tasted them has gone wide-eyed with shock that something so simple could taste SO good! And the best part is, they're soooooo easy to make! It takes a few minutes to make the ganache, a few minutes to roll and coat the balls, and that's it! No Tempering! No dipping! Just incredibly easy perfection!

HOW TO MAKE GANACHE
  • Put V125 Indulgence Couverture Milk Chocolate in a large mixing bowl. Do not melt the chocolate. Just put the discs in.
  • Bring cream slowly to a light boil in a heavy saucepan.
  • Pour 3/4 of a cup of boiling cream into a coffee cup and quickly stir in the Nescafe Instant Coffee. Leave the remaining cream over the heat.
  • When the instant coffee has dissolved, pour boiling cream over chocolate and keep stirring until all the chocolate has melted.
  • When the ganache is warm it's creamy. You can thicken it by whisking it.
  • Cover the bowl of ganache and refrigerate (about 3 hours) or freeze (about 1 ½ hours) until firm. You want the ganache to be just thick enough to easily form the truffle balls.
HOW TO FORM TRUFFLES

PRO TIP: Keep an ice pack next to you and in between rolling the ganache into balls hold the ice pack in your hands to keep your hands cold - then the chocolate won't melt while rolling the balls!

  • Create 1" round balls by using a very small ice cream scooper or a melon baller. (Or just use your clean hands to grab some ganache and have fun rolling it into a ball - it's sort of like Play Dough).
  • Immediately roll balls of ganache into crushed peppermint candy.
  • Place the balls on a cookie sheet and freeze until firmer (about 45 minutes).
  • Because of the heavy cream, keep chilled in an airtight container until ready to serve.
