I'm with Auseo, bye bye to the corn syrup. I use butter in my truffles as I like the flavour it gives them, but I have done it without.

I usually put mine in the freezer for one hour, it doesn't affect the quality but it makes the chocolate set quickly. Bearing in mind that most of my chocolate making was during an Australian lead up to Christmas.....very hot weather.

I also sometimes miss dipping them in chocolate and roll them in cocoa instead.

LOL, Kyles! Trying to make truffles in the heat of summer!!! I can't imagine doing that, because I probably couldn't afford the A/C bill to get the kitchen cool enough!!! At least you won't be worrying about a heat wave this Christmas!!

Mochabean, you're very welcome. Please do let us know how your next batch comes out!!!

Best of luck to you!!

In Australia we keep to English traditions. One of which is to make Christmas pudding, which takes 6 hours to boil. I used to make it in my swimming costume because it was so hot, which on my size 22 frame is pretty funny, or should that be scary!!!!! Much nicer to do all this cooking in the cold weather!!!
