I know… truffles look complicated to make. Honestly, they don’t have to be. The most difficult part of truffle making is the dipping process, so let’s remedy that issue with Truffle SPOONS!

The standard easy truffle recipe I use for holidays involves whipping chocolate ganache until light and fluffy, piping the whipped ganache into little mounds, then freezing it.

MY OTHER RECIPES


Once the ganache balls are frozen, I place them on the end of a wooden skewer and dip them in tempered molten chocolate. Making sure they have a thick, even, airtight coating to protect the ganache is extremely important, so removing the skewer takes a little practice.

Making Chocolate and Roses Truffle Spoons is really not that difficult. Yet using spoons as a platform for the ganache, not only makes them easier to dip, it turns them into truffle spoon pops, a delightful bite-size gift to pass around to friends.

Normally, I am not a huge fan of rose flavored things. The only other recipe I’ve posted with rose water is Old Fashion Blueberry Pudding. Yet the combination of creamy white chocolate ganache laced with aromatic rose water, then coated in rich dark chocolate is TO-DIE-FOR. My hubby, who HATES rose water, was all over these truffle spoons.

Chocolate and Roses Truffle Spoons offer a unique, yet appropriate, flavor profile for Valentines Day.

COOK’S NOTES: Now that the dipping is no longer an issue, tempering the dark chocolate is the only thing that needs real focused attention. Tempering is the process of melting chocoalte, bringing the temperature up and back down, so that as it hardens the chocolate is firm and glossy, not cloudy or dimpled. The unofficial simple method of tempering (no thermometers and marble slabs) is to place the chocolate in a double-boiler over medium-low heat. Stir until the chocolate is JUST melted, then stir in a little more chocolate to bring the temperature down. I usually take the double-boiler off the stove but leave the bowl over the hot water to keep warm. *If the tempering concerns you, buy dark chocolate flavored candy coating and microwave to melt.

    I would LOVE a few of these for Valentine’s Day! Even without the extra dunking step and just eating the piped mixture on the spoon…

    This is seriously genius! I’ve never made truffles and the sole reason being the mess that I envision the dipping process to be. Not only does this fix that, it’s super cute!

    Im SO glad valentines day is going to make the end of my mini slim down diet. These are exactly the sort of thing that will make a a perfect re-introduction to a ‘sometimes sugar eating diet’ – yippppeeee! And love the ease of making them with spoons AND I also quite like rose water anyways … :)

  30. Toni (Boulder Locavore)posted January 29, 2012 at 8:55 am Reply

    So clever Sommer! I’ve purchased similar spoons designed to be used in hot drinks like coffee or hot chocolate but love this idea. I also love all your attention to detail; the pink spoons and simple adornments.

  31. Alaiyo Kiasiposted January 29, 2012 at 7:38 pm Reply

    I absolutely love this idea, and who would turn it down? No one, that’s who, because it’s not so much that one’s diet would be blown and it’s already on a spoon. Who could resist? Beautiful!

    Truffle spoon pops? Now who wouldn’t love these beauties??!

    These are absolutely darling! What a great valentine gift that would be fairly easy to make in bulk. I want to make these now. I’m saving in case I have some free-time.

    I love making candy and I love making truffles. I’ve never made them with rose water though. Sounds very interesting. For Christmas, I made them and sprinkled the outside with crushed candy cane, used some peppermint extract in the chocolate. So delicious. I use Ghiradelli’s 65% cacao baking chocolate almost exclusively. It is cheaper at Christmas time (1.99-2.49 bar instead of $3 a bar) so I stock up. I melt in the microwave, add a bit of the room temp chocolate to temper it a bit and it works very well for all my candy making needs.

  36. Joyposted February 1, 2012 at 4:19 pm Reply

    This is so cool. I have been trying to master tempering forever. Thanks for the tips.

    Hello,
    I just found this recipe and I love the idea! However, I was hoping to make these for a more formal occasion using your original method (without the spoon). You mentioned that you spear the frozen truffle and then dip it into the chocolate – how do you remove the skewer without leaving a hole in the truffle (you mentioned that they should be airtight)?

    • Sommerposted October 3, 2014 at 5:36 am Reply

      Hi Rachel, usually when you take out the skewer the chocolate runs in the hole, so it sort of takes care of itself. If not you can drop one little drop of melted chocolate over the hole.

    Hi, I enjoy reading your recipes very much. You inspire and help our boring meals to a food makeover. I like the way you pipe the ganache on the spoon. I have wanted to invest in a good piping bag and tips for some time now. Any suggestions? What brand do you use? What about care and clean-up for the piping bag? Is it difficult?
    Thanks so much. I look forward to hearing from you.
