I’ve piped the truffles and am preparing for the last batch of dipping. I have also made a batch of “proper” truffle truffles by putting about 3/4 oz of black Himalayan truffle into 120g cream and 140g of chocolate – overkill, but this particular truffle doesn’t seem to have a particularly strong fragrance (perhaps that’s why it was only $25/oz?), so I need the extra.
I am down to maybe 4 kg chocolate (10 lbs) but I think I will have enough to finish things out, and even a kg or two left over. This will teach me to buy more chocolate next year…30 lbs is not enough! I need more of a safety margin.
