I am making cake truffles for the first time
what do they get dipped in?
I searched, but all the answers seem to assume one knows the ratios, etc.
I dont want peanut butter in the chocolate
do i make a ganache?
just chocolate and butter?
what is the 'recipe'?
Most of them are dipped in Candy melts..Wilton and Merkens to name a few sell colored melts.There is also a cake ball thread on here somewhere which list lots of variations of recipes..
anything more from 'scratch'? I dont like candy melts.
You can use almond bark or choc. chips with a bit of wax added.
i made them for the 1st time this week also. i used leftover cake from my daughters birthday and candy melts..they came out perfect and are now in the freezer for a baby shower in two weeks.
curious where you saw peanut butter being used
candy melts are the way to go. tried to make some from "scratch" and the chocolate kept lumping and making a mess. from now on I'm sticking with the candy melts
