Decadent Chocolate Truffles

As much as I may attribute my success as a pastry chef to my abilities, some of it may come the fact that I have naturally cold hands, even in summer. I can handle buttery pastries easily, and my hands are sometimes so chilly, that chocolate will set on my fingers as I’m making truffles.

Even with cold hands, making truffles is a messy, though exceptionally satisfying task. Remember to wear an apron! Makes about 24 truffles.

For coating


Variation: Instead of 1 tsp vanilla extract, you can add one of the following for a different flavour:

1 tsp peppermint extract

1 tsp almond extract

1 tsp orange extract

1 tsp coconut extract

1 tsp rum extract
