I am able to make "plain" truffles if you want them but for special orders there is a minimum order of 3 boxes as this ensures that there is no wastage and that it is worth my time (they do take a while to make).Originally Posted by Rahkoon
.........Isn't there any "plain" truffles? Like, non-coffee or maple syrup or coconut or anything. Just your plain old delicious chocolate truffle, only vegan?
Good luck with these though, I might give them a shot next time I'm in London
ah. thanks. I will bear that in mind if I ever want a "plain" versionOriginally Posted by thehappyhippo
The maple one is really called my plain truffle by a number of my regulars. The maple flavour is subtle and maple syrup is the perfect thickness to make the truffle soft enough. If I was to make a truly plain truffle the texture of the truffle would suffer slightly unless I could use another mild, liquid syrup and the flavourless syrups I can buy are of large quantities. Something to think about in the future though.
A lot of companies pipe different designs on the top of the chocolate (in chocolate) so you can tell the difference... like one gets a dot, one gets stripes, one gets curley q's... that sort of thing.Originally Posted by thehappyhippo
I have a mixed flavour box that may be coming out in September. It gets a bit more complicated with mixed flavour boxes as you got to be able to tell one flavour from another. I'm trying to think of an easy way that doesn't require excessive packaging, haven't worked it out yet but then I have been focusing on my new chocolate bar range a lot.
Thank you for all the positive comments. Glad you like the idea of more interesting flavours. The salt and pepper is the weirdest but gives chocolate a very unique flavour.
I've been looking into that, but as they are all handmade that sort of detail can be time consuming and mind numbingly boring after a few 1000 truffles. Lovely idea though and one I will be using for my chocolate collection range in the future. I have found two of the four different mould shapes so I can, at the very least, have a two-flavoured box.Originally Posted by rabid_child
