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....no cream cheese....no 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.
Chocolate truffle is made from a basic ganash recipe Its the same thing.
Caths_Cakes that's what I thought......so if it is the same thing, my recipe using Powdered sugar and cream cheese won't change the taste any?

Oh! The horror!
I know, I know All4cake....it should be againts the law...some cake crime! LOL....That's why I am asking here!
I've used the recipe with the ps and cream cheese! It's incredibly smooth and rich....WONDERFUL! I highly recommend it.
That's Getus....I just want to make sure she doesn't take a bite of cake and say...."is that cream cheese I taste in my truffle filling?" LOL
I make truffles all the time with 2 different recipes, one with cream cheese and one without. Both are great tasting.
