Hi Angie

I needed to make a special little something to take to a Stamp Club meeting today and I thought of making your Traditional Chocolate Truffles (the ones you make out of cream and chocolate pieces) for the event. They turned out so nice!

You can see that I didn't dip them in tempered chocolate - I just rolled them in sifted unsweetened cocoa powder - but are they ever yummy.

Thank you so much for providing a simple and easy recipe for me to use - one that turned out right the very first time I tried it!

I love Chocolate Candy Mall.


PS The recipe made lots more truffles than this - I just wanted to show you a few in a pretty little dish :)

Hi Susan!

Wonderful to hear from you. Sure wish I was going to that Stamp Club meeting so I could taste test those traditional chocolate truffles. :)

They look absolutely wonderful. Thanks so much for taking the time to show them off for us. I do love the simplicity of this recipe. By skipping the tempered chocolate coating, it's even easier.

Cocoa powder was a nice choice for coating, but there are so many variations that you could choose - coconut, icing sugar, non pareils, crushed nuts, toffee bits, etc.

Now I'm getting hungry!!!

Having a great time visiting my family in the States, but miss all you guys back in Oz. Hope you are all well.

Thanks again for sharing,

Hi Angie

It's so good to know you are alright over there, so far away from us here in Australia! Being with family is always so special. I'm glad you can spend some time with them AND glad you miss all of us over here :)

I made another batch of chocolate truffles today and as they had been in the fridge overnight, they were much easier to handle and roll into smoother balls. This time I rolled them in coconut, powdered sugar and more cocoa, and I also thought afterward I could have tried cinnamon sugar too. By then I had run out of chocolate to roll though, so maybe next time :)

I put a new picture of them on my blog because I thought they would be great wrapped in cellophane and then placed in a handmade paper gift box! I will have to make a special box sometime just for these truffles and show you how they look then :)

Take care and always remember we love ya over here!
