I had always thought that candy truffles were difficult to make—but I was wrong. The cooking demo at KaTom on Saturday proved that they could be one of the more easy holiday candies. Even better, you can make a variety of flavors. Here is how it went…
First, there was some excitement due to an incoming weather system and the possibility of snow, a holiday surprise to come later on Sunday evening.
We looked up truffle prices online and found that this candy can be quite pricey.
Consequently, it can be a good idea to make your own truffles.
The recipe is straightforward and not too difficult.
We approve of this ingredient!
Necessary if you want the best truffles possible.
I arrived at the best part—scraping the chocolate mix to create the individual candies.
Line up the candies on parchment paper before applying the coating.
We also enjoy this ingredient.
Time for a coffee break!
Yes, they were wonderful with such rich flavor.
Some of us volunteered to help with the coatings: powdered sugar, cocoa, or pecans.
I will say that the first bite transported me to another place. Divine!
We were invited to take some samples home from the truffles demonstration so this was my reward for the drive out to KaTom. They will keep in the fridge for weeks.
Barbara had a young fan in attendance who really enjoys cooking. I predict that Lillie may be on the Food Network some day. We enjoyed spending the session with her and her grandmother. These demos are great for children who enjoy cooking and food preparation.
Always get your picture with the cook!
Look out for next week…
The demo will be homemade caramels! Save me a place at the counter!
