Chocolate Truffles are a super treat to kids as they look chocolaty and also tastes so good and yummy having three layers of chocolate.The truffles originated first from France and the truffles are made with chocolate Ganache.The Ganache is cooled after it is made for rolling into truffles.There are many flavorings and ideas when we start to make a truffle.The truffle is full of chocolate starting from ganache to final rolling.But sometimes the final rolling is done with powdered pistachios,dessicated coconut and some colorful sprinklers available in markets.These are came under bite sized pastries and we can make upto our imagination.I am here did not going to use my ganache instead am going to use my leftover double chocolate cupcakes and some melted dark chocolate for the first rolling and for second coating,melted dark chocolate is used  and for final coating Semi sweet cocoa powder is used.For the ganache you have to cool it for 2 hours for firm rolling and use ice cream scoop for that.The outcome came out so perfect eventhough we are using leftover cakes for that.We can also call this as fully loaded chocolate truffles.Try these yummy truffles and relish with your kids and family.
