Chocolate Truffle Ideas
I make chocolate truffles and I just love to come up with new ideas for them.
Does anyone have any new ideas for them? Flavors, recipes?
I have done the following:
Dark Chocolate and any liquer. ameretto, raspberry, Grand Marnier (orange)
White chocolate and ameretto
White or dark chocolate and mint flavoring
Pina Colada which is white chocolate pineapple coconut and rum
Almond Joy which is white chocolate, coconut and Almonds or pecans
White chocolate and peanut butter
I dip mine in Chocolate but it requires the chocolate to be tempered. I have a revolation 2 chocolate temperer so it is easy but if you don't you could roll them in cocoa, chopped nuts, coconut or whatever you can think of.
bumping this old thread since it has some good ideas...
is anyone else making truffles this season?
Thinking about making Earl Grey truffles and Grand Marnier truffles. Does anyone have a tried and true recipe they'd recommend for either of these flavours?
Thanks for any suggestions.

chocolate truffles with Grand Marnier
If you can get your hands on passion fruit puree - reduce it to a thick syrup - mix w/ chocolate and cream for filling and then dip in choc. ... very good -
I think you could also use passion fruit liquor (Alize) - but the puree has a really intense flavor.
Coconut would also be good w this!
Just saw Giada make chocolate truffles with balsamic vinegar. They looked good.
Any chance you've ever made cherry truffles? I'd love to make those but don't have a recipe. I imagine you could just add maraschino cherry juice, but I don't know the proportions.
