Two years ago I was taught by a pastry chef how to make delicious chocolate truffles. I am now expected to make them every Christmas season. However, he taught me using only Brandy to flavour and made it very clear not to flavour with something if it contains water. Since I am not a professional pastry chef, what other products would work for flavouring and where would I buy them? I love the combination of mint and chocolate or raspberry and chocolate, but it seems alcohols that have these flavours also have water added to them. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm in Ontario if that helps with directing your suggestions. Thanks a lot!
