Truffles

By

Definition: Truffles are a bite-sized chocolate confection usually made from ganache, a mixture of chocolate and cream. Traditionally, truffles are formed into small balls and rolled in cocoa powder, giving them a rustic look reminiscent of their fungal namesakes. Truffles can also be dipped in chocolate for a more finished look, or the ganache can be used as a filling for molded chocolates.
