Flowing Fruit Flavoured Fillings For Chocolate Making
by Perre Garrard
I have been reading through your site but cannot find a recipe for a really runny filling for putting into mold made chocolates. I do not want fondant. I want the filling to be runny but without any alcohol at all.
In some boxes of chocolates for instance, the strawberry filling will be really runny and so delicious. I don't like fondant but want to be able to use fruit to make runny fillings for my chocolates.
Is anyone able to help me with a general recipe, please? And also tips on whether I can use fruit juices or must use oils and so on would be really appreciated.
One of the reasons I prefer the runny centres is because they are never as sweet as the fondant and I like my fillings to have a little sharpness in them.
I know just what you mean. I rather prefer the runny fillings myself. I know you can purchase the fillings in bags in the US from Candyland Crafts
, but I'm not sure about the shipping to Australia. It might be a bit pricey, even though the fillings are only a couple of dollars a bag. It's worth asking about.
As far as making it yourself, I don't see why you couldn't use fruit juices or even jam in the recipe. I think your best bet is to experiment until you find a consistency and flavor that you prefer.
Have you looked at the different chocolate covered buttercream candy recipes
that I have listed? You could play with those a bit and see if you can find one that suits your purposes.
Let's hope some other visitors will contribute their ideas and recipes, too. When you find a concoction that you like, be sure to come back and share the recipe. I think a lot of people would happy to see it!
Keep us posted!
