i have made 'cruffle's , and i can never get the chocolate coating to be nicely rounded like a truffle... do any of you add a bit of wax to your coating? and how do you dip yours, with a candy dipper, fingers.... please tell me!!! kaciealexa
I do have a candy dipper...but dont like it too much...I use plastic forks...One that has the two middle teeth broken and either another or a butter knife to push it off the first fork.
Make sure that the ball or cruffle is solid and doesnt have peices coming or sticking off. Drop in chocoalte, I use a spatula to make sure it's covered, and scoopit up with the fork, tap to get extra choco off and slide it off on parchment paper to dry...
I stick a toothpick in before popping into the freezer. Elevate the cooling rack (with or without wax paper on top). Then poke the toothpick through the hole, reach under & grab it & pull the toothpick out. It's a little more time consuming but gives a cleaner finish.
If your finish is rough: roll in nuts, sprinkles, drizzle with colored chocolate, etc.
I thin my chocolate with shortening. I just use forks to dip it.
