I made a batch last night...I think it was Macsmom's with cream cheese and PS. In googling recipes today, I see most truffle filling recipes call for heavy cream PS. Sounds like a ganache recipe to me???? What is the taste difference in these recipes. I am not a chocolate fan and do not like this filling so I can't taste it and make any comments, but I have a request for it as a filling. What is a traditional "chocolate truffle filling" consist of (in case the customer is looking for "traditinal")? Thanks

I think that ganache is a traditional truffle filling.

A traditional chocolate truffle consists of heavy cream and a good quality chocolate. I've seen MacsMom's recipe for truffle filling and was thinking of giving it a try just to taste the difference.

I used Gharadelli chocolate chips. Don't know if that is considered qualtiy (I hope so). It "appears" like it will be a good filling (texture wise). VERY chocolatey..but I'm sure that is what ganache/truffle filling tastes like considering the chocoate used. I would think the PS and cream cheese would give it a different texture/taste then she may be expecting. I hope someone answers that has compated Macsmom's to ganache and can give me their opinion.

Caths_Cakes that's what I if it is the same thing, my recipe using Powdered sugar and cream cheese won't change the taste any?

I make truffles all the time with 2 different recipes, one with cream cheese and one without. Both are great tasting.
