How To Remove Truffles From A Mold
by Pattie Jacobson
I have used a really nice plastic mold for some truffles that I made. The problem is removing the truffle from the mold.
The only way I found to remove the truffles was to set the mold into hot water.........not touching the candy truffles. Some come out OK, while others come out of the molds half melted.
Thanks for your time.
You are asking about how to remove truffles from a mold. Have you tried putting the molds into the freezer?
That's the best way I find to remove molded chocolates easily.
It shouldn't take long in the freezer - maybe 5-10 minutes. You can usually tell when the chocolate is ready by holding the mold up and looking at the under side.
The cool chocolate pulls away from the mold and it is usually noticeable if you are using a clear mold.
Turn the mold upside down on the counter top and then gently tap it if needed. The truffles or molded chocolates should fall right out.
I don't recommend putting the mold in warm water to release the chocolate truffles for the very reason you described - your chocolate will melt! :)
Let me know if you find that the freezer method works for you or if you still have trouble removing your truffles from the molds.
Take a photo of your finished molded truffles and show them off to us here! We'd love to see them.
