What would you make with a 5 lb. brick of delicious caramel? My husband would probably eat it plain and it would be delicious that way, but I orderd it to make truffles! 3 Step Truffles: Roll, Dip, and Set. They came together so quickly. Within a couple of hours I had over 100 of them packaged up and ready to take to church for Mother’s day on Sunday. Let me show you how easy it is to create your own caramel truffle. They are so fun to customize! Choose dark or milk chocolate, drizzle with chocolate on the top or sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Any combination will result in a rich and creamy dessert that will rival your favorite candy store.
3 Step Caramel Truffles
Drizzling Chocolate (optional)
Small rubber spatula
Double Boiler or Melting Pot
Melt your chocolate in whatever method you choose. Double boiler, chocolate melting pot, or microwave. All melting chocolates come with instructions for the best methods to use. I used my melting pot. I love it because it keeps my chocolate at the perfect temperature for dipping.
Start out by breaking off a piece of caramel and rolling it into a small 1″ ball.
Drop the caramel ball into the chocolate and scoop out with your dipping tool/fork. Gently tap on side of the pot to allow excess chocolate to drip off.
Line your baking sheets or cutting board with a non stick surface for the chocolate to set up on. I used dipping sheets. Refrigerate chocolates for 10 minutes or until hardened.
Drizzle with dark or white chocolate (optional). I simply warmed up the bottle and quickly did a zig-zag across each truffle. I think that was my favorite part!
Once the drizzle sets, place your truffles in individual candy cups and store in an air tight container.
The kids are going to decorate tiny Chinese take-out boxes on Sunday and pick out a truffle to give to their moms for Mother’s Day. We have 100 children at our church so we wanted something simple for them to do. I think they will be excited to take a truffle to their mom.
All of my ingredients are from Chocoley.com. They were gracious enough to send me the supplies I needed to make these Mother’s Day Truffles in exchange for teaching you how to make them too!
