Learn the basics of truffle making, so you can create rich and delicious chocolate truffles in your home.

The truffles you make in the class will be yours to enjoy (at least a dozen). We will demonstrate two ways to make a truffle. One approach is the more traditional method and the second is a simpler and less time-consuming approach. You will also pickup tips, recipes and suggestions as to where you can buy quality chocolates, molds, etc. You may be able to find some of these items locally and you may be able to find alternatives that are less expensive. There are countless options in making truffles; each truffle you make is unique. Once you learn to make truffles, you can do some experimenting, have fun and enjoy your wonderful creations. And, of course, your friends and family will greatly appreciate anything you are willing to share.
