I have a recipe for Chocolate Truffle Filling; from Cakes to Dream on, Colette Peters, but it requires heavy cream. Is there a substitue for heavy cream or a recipe? OR is there a great chocolate icing/filling recipe you could possibly help me out with. Thanks! icon_sad.gif

This list always comes in handy. It says, if it isn't needed for whipping, to use 2/3 c whole milk + 1/3 c melted unsalted butter.

i've used evaporated milk in ganache before (joy of cooking reference as well), but its no match for the real thing (heavy cream) taste wise

Sweetie, you can use a couple of tablespoons of flour and an equal amount of butter. It makes a thick paste and is very useful in icing when you don't have cream that is desired. This is a fantastic substitute for cooking and I wish you the very best with your cooking.

Well that means the noobs are searching before posting questions, right?  I would think that makes people happy!
