If you make truffles or other round candies with any degree of frequency, you will find the candy scoop to be an invaluable tool. While regular spoons do the job of creating small balls of candy, the results are often misshapen and have to be re-rolled by hand. Candy scoops consistently create perfectly formed spheres of candy quickly and reliably. They are also available in a variety of sizes, depending on how large you want your candies to be. If you are using a loose ganache or other candy base, you will need to refrigerate it until it is firm enough to scoop.
