Soft truffles after dipping

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm having a problem with my truffles becoming too soft on the inside after dipping and refrigerating. I use cream and butter to make them, flavor them with liquor or extracts. I've read the ganache shouldn't be placed in the fridge. I leave mine out until it cools and then refrigerate it because I don't normally dip it the same day. It's firm out of the fridge but leave out a bit or coat it and try to bite into one, it's very soft. I want it to be harder at room temp. Any ideas? I see some people don't use butter at all. Is that my mistake?

The humidty of your fridge can cause havoc with the texture of the ganache, this is why it shouldn't be refrigerated.  Butter has a lower melting point than chocolate, so it will give the ganache a much softer mouthfeel.  But I wouldn't call it a mistake.

 

You can play wit the consistency by playing with the amount of liquids you put in your ganache, less liquid= firmer ganache.

 

hope this helps
