Different Types of Chocolate Truffles

Not all chocolate truffles are the same. There is the classic round shaped truffle, made with a firm ganache, then rolled in cocoa powder, powdered sugar, or nuts. A dipped truffle has been formed, then dipped in tempered chocolate to coat or "enrobe" it in a thin crisp chocolate coating. A molded truffle or "bonbon" starts with heavy polycarbonate molds in different shapes. The mold cavities are coated with a thin coating of tempered chocolate, then filled with ganache, then closed or "capped" with another thin layer of tempered chocolate on the bottom. If made correctly, the truffles come out of the molds very easily after the chocolate has set or "crystallized". The final product should be a beautiful shiny truffle with a nice "snap" of chocolate when bitten into.
