Truffles Finished, ta-da!

Finally finished. Some thoughts- chopping the chocolate blocks into small uniform pieces (while a very laborious task), did aid in making a smoother, silkier ganache.

Overall, I liked the Santander 70% chocolate the best. It had a more fruity, brighter, and warmer taste than the Valrhona. And, it is a little lighter on the wallet as well. =)

Bravo! Not only does it sound like the truffles will taste amazing, but they look so happy sitting there, all plump and chocolatey :)

Yum!

Suberr -- your truffles are amazing! Thank you SO much for giving us a sampling of your truffling 2.0... :) We very much enjoyed them all! (My personal favorite was the Colombian -- what heavenly chocolate!)

It's finals week, so I'm going back through all my friends' old blogs... :)

I was just wondering -- would a food processor work in chopping up chocolate, or is chocolate too hard/unchoppable?
