The Partiologist: Chocolate Truffles!

Chocolate Truffles!

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I'm showing you how I made the chocolate truffles for the wedding.  I have to say, the ones I made were a little on the time consuming side.  So you do have the option to add an already made candy heart to the top.  Either way, they'll be chocolate.  And that is a good thing.

Chocolate Truffles

Really easy to make, you just need patience and A LOT OF TIME.  But they were worth it in the end and the perfect addition of chocolate for my daughter's wedding.

So let's get started.

This is the time consuming part.  I made one chocolate bar at a time.  You could totally skip this part and add a candy heart.

I used a Wilton candy/fondant mold for the bar.  I wanted something that would be unique and one of a kind, so I searched my supplies and came up with this.

Topped with a little red rose it was perfect.

The roses were made nine at a time, so that helped a little.  Just a little.

After the roses were made, I set them aside to harden.

Next it was time to make the truffles.  Recipe HERE.

After the truffle mixture is set, scoop and roll into a ball.

FYI  Your hands will be coated with chocolate.

Roll the truffle in sanding sugar.  I used brown sanding sugar, but you could use white.

After the truffle is coated, place in mini paper cup.

Now it's time to put the chocolate topper together.

Pipe a tiny bit of chocolate on the bar and add the red rose.

Place on parchment paper.

Then it's time to add the bar to the top of the truffle.

I piped more chocolate on the back of the bar and placed one on the top of each truffle.

  1. These are wonderful; thank you! Can you post a link for the rose mold? I have many flower molds, but these look like toothpick rose size and I can't pipe on a toothpick!

    1. Thank you Martha, yes, they are itty bitty roses and I use that mold often. I just added the link!

  2. I can't imagine how long it took to make one tiny piece of chocolate at a time. You have SO much patience! Anyway, the truffles look gorgeous. I'm sure the wedding guests loved them.

    1. I didn't imagine how long it would take until I was to far into the project to change. LOL Anyway, they were delicious and beautiful and I ended up being so happy I took the time! Thanks Beth!
