Truffles hold a place of prominence in the pantheon of chocolate confectionery. These intensely flavored bonbons, each one just a bite or two of rich, velvety chocolate with a creamy filling, are featured in gourmet boutiques around the world. What may come as a surprise is that these luxuriously indulgent candies are actually easy to make at home!
In her new book, Truffles: 50 Deliciously Decadent Homemade Chocolate Treats, Dede Wilson offers elegant and creative recipes, with helpful hints on how to choose your chocolate and tips for decorating each candy. Whether you want to give a box of truffles as a gift, or you're just pampering yourself with a stash (you deserve it!), Truffles is full of opulent treats that any chocolate lover will savor.
With enticing full-color photos throughout, Truffles includes recipes for classic and contemporary candies using a variety of chocolates—white, milk, and dark—and a wide range of creme, fruit, nut, and all-chocolate fillings.
Treat yourself (or someone special) to Creme Fraiche Vanilla Bean Chocolate Truffles, Cocoa-Dusted Classic Bittersweet Chocolate Truffles, Cranberry White Chocolate Truffles, or even a decadent Triple Truffle, a milk chocolate shell filled with dark and white chocolate ganache. For adventurous candy-makers, Wilson has exotic varieties such as Cognac Truffles, Bittersweet Chocolate Champagne Truffles (for a sweet New Year's Eve), Pumpkin Spice Milk Chocolate Truffles, or romantic Roses and White Chocolate Truffles.
