RECIPE – Ghost White Chocolate Truffles

- 2 cups milk chocolate (chopped)
- White chocolate (melted for coating)
Step 1. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chopped milk chocolate and melt it in the microwave.
Step 2. Once melted, pour the room temperature cream over the melted chocolate and mix it well.
Step 3. Allow this mixture to rest in the fridge for at least 30-40 minutes until it becomes ﬁrm enough to roll into balls.
Step 4. Line a tray/plate with parchment paper.
Step 5. Roll even-sized balls and then dunk them into melted white chocolate.
Step 6. Use a fork to turn around the balls and make sure they are coated properly on all sides.
Step 7. Once coated, transfer these onto the tray/plate lined with parchment paper.
Step 8. Transfer the melted milk chocolate into a piping bag and cut a very small opening at the tip. Now pipe ghost eyes on the truffle balls.
