Is there a differnece...?? It seems that they are used interchangeably. When I read the recipe for a chocolate truffle filling, it was the same as my ganache?
the ganache I use is only chocolate and heavy cream. the truffle recipe has cream cheese and powdered sugar in it. I have only used the ganache to drizzle on a cake, haven't tried it as filling. I love the truffle filling, I think the cream cheese adds a nice flavor to it. hope this helps.
My truffle filling has cream cheese in it as well. It is VERY different from ganache. I like the texture of a set ganache. Truffle filling is rather thick.
Excellent! Thanks for the info!
Well i guess it depends on how you define truffles. European Truffles are simply candies made from chocolate and cream. So technically it is a ganache that has been allowed to set. I use the same recipe ganache as filling and frosting but when I use it as filling, I call it chocolate truffle filling. Sounds more decadent. Semantics
I am with KK - the recipe I use for both is the same recipe. I use less cream when I am making truffles, makes the mixture stiffer.
the truffle filling recipe I use is from the gourmet thread from macsmom. It's just a filling, I think
Truffle filling, ganache = same thing in my kichen
