How do you soften truffle mixture?
“A good truffle should melt in your mouth,” says Saffitz. If you serve them stone-cold and straight outta the fridge, you’re missing the point. That said, letting them sit at room temperature for hours will render them so soft that you can’t pick them up. A solid hour oughta do the trick.
Why are my truffles melting?
If the truffles are too soft, they will become misshapen or even melt into the chocolate, yielding a lumpy mess. If they are refrigerated before dipping, the chocolate coating is more likely to crack. One solution to this problem is to let your rolled truffles sit at cool room temperature overnight before dipping them.
How do you make truffles last longer?
Truffles should be stored in a sealable container until ready to eat. For best results, storing them in the refrigerator will help them last longer and keep their shape. If you used different coatings, I’d recommend storing each one in a separate container OR using wax paper to separate the different coatings.
