chocolate truffles

 I did not know that making truffles was so simple.This months Daring Bakers challenge was making candies. I had been to Chocolate making classes almost 7 years back at Manju's cooking class, so I knew the basics of tempering chocolate, filling, liqueur chocolates ....So I was pretty excited about the whole challenge.

The challenge asked for 3 different kinds of candies, I had planned to make truffles, simple chocolates filled with butterscotch granules and rice crisps, chocolate bon bon and liqueur chocolates. I made the first two.....but lost interest (Iam just lazy). So not entering this months Daring bakers challenge.

But got to enjoy yummy truffles.
