I've been using the candy melts by Wilton to dip my cake truffles in. However, I just don't like how crunchy and hard it dries. I want it to dry hard but not be so difficult to bite into. Is there something else that has less hardness to it when you bite it that I can dip these in?

Expensive bulk chocolate like Godiva or Callebaut or whatever chocolate available to you.

Hi, you can use melted chocolate or once I used ganache to dip these. So yummy! icon_smile.gif

Oh I WISH I had a tempering machine! I love ganache, but how do I get it thin enough to dip and still dry hard like a truffle shell?

Guess I'll be heading to the gourmet food store to buy some good chocolate. Thanks everyone!

Does anyone have a receipe to make cake truffles? I have one but I was wondering if there are any variations of it.

I had this same dilema until I added Paramount Crystals to my chocolate (and/or melts). This makes the chocolate mixture thinner and it covers more truffles too. It also makes the chocolate less brittle when you bite into it because the coating is'much thinner'. thumbs_up.gif

I use Plymouth Pantry Almond Bark, comes in choc. and vanillia, trans fat free, just microwave to melt , I get mine at walmart. And I think it has a smooth texture and taste to it, both flavors are good to me.
