Shelf Life of Chocolates


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

If they want 6 months, have them buy Godiva. Those things are the Twinkie's of chocolate.

What is a "Traditional Chocolate Truffle"?

That is what I use too. I scoop and weigh each ganache. I shoot for 5/8 oz for each and hit about 98% of the time. When they are enrobed each is 1 oz. Thanks for your input.

If you want to know something about chocolate go to the source! Thank you Clay. I will be forwarding this information along with the information from the International Chocolate Contest to the operator of the show and competition I entered. Competition is good but judging should be on a level field. ]

Thank everyone who answered my question.

That is my definition also. This contest judged molded and filled Bonbons, Pralines and Truffles in the same category as "Traditional" and "Non-Traditional" Truffles. I will be contacting the contest administrator with some suggestions.

What is a "Traditional Chocolate Truffle"?


Posted in: Opinion

I have a dilemma. I entered what I thought was a "Truffle" contest and the winners were what I consider "Bonbons". I remember some time ago on the old Discover Chocolate site Clay defined several types of Truffle. I think they were: French, American, Nouvelle American. I also posted this question: What is a "Traditional Truffle" on the Ecole Chocolat Graduate forum. There seems to be a wide and subjective definition. What is yours?

Calling all Chocolatiers: What are YOU Making Special for Easter This Year?


Posted in: News & New Product Press

I mold the two halves and base. Fill with ganache as smush together. I don't melt or fill the joint and as you can see it is very small. These are 4" eggs.

Calling all Chocolatiers: What are YOU Making Special for Easter This Year?


Posted in: News & New Product Press

I have good luck with these, 65% Dark with white marbling. Filled with white chocolate vanilla ganache and a lemon (Limoncello) yolk. Randomly I put two yolks in a few just like getting a double yolk egg. People love them and slice them like bread for Easter desert.
