The Decadent Chocolate Truffle Dessert Shells are perfect for any occasion, from weddings to casual gatherings. They are fairly simple and quick to make. This step-by-step will show you how to make the miniature chocolate shell and give you a few ideas of what to place inside of it.
Step 1: Ingredients
The first thing you need to do is get all your equipment together.
1. Chocolate is a must. (You can use your favorite brand of chocolate. I prefer buying the 10 lb bars. I break them down into smaller pieces and melt them. )
2. You will need a mold to make the chocolate shell. (Michael's has some great molds to choose from.)
3. Truffle mixtures are what I used to fill the shells with. You can use other ingredients, such as frosting or peanut butter, etc ...
*One truffle mixture I used was made with an equal amount of chocolate and whipping cream. Another truffle mixture I used in the example, was made with cream cheese, white chocolate and whipping cream.
*These truffle mixtures stay a creamy substance. You can also add flavors to the truffle mixtures you make to spice things up.
4. Lastly, you will need something to decorate the top of your truffle cup with. I used fruits, nuts and chocolate shavings in the following examples.
