A confection made of chocolate (ganache), butter, sugar, and sometimes liqueur shaped

into balls and often coated with cocoa. Truffles are made by heating a rich blend of

butter, cream, chocolate, and often a flavoring, delicately shaping it, and enrobing

it with chocolate couverture (milk, dark or white). Different truffle textures can be created by

rolling the center ganache in cocoa powder, powdered sugar, or finely chopped nuts.

Truffles, originally named after the exotic French mushroom because of its visual

resemblance, are either hand-rolled chocolate or domed with a

piped center.
