Chocolate truffles!

Chocolate truffles get their name from the fungi variety found buried in the ground. This is due to their round often uneven shape and their dark and dusty appearance.
Generally, truffle centers are smooth, moist and single flavoured. Truffle varieties are usually achieved by infusing the cream with desired flavour while making the ganache or by incorporating oil or alcohol into the ganache. Some may contain nut pieces in the center..
Truffles can be made in white, milk or dark chocolate or a combination thereof, as long as recipe is balanced and takes into account of the type of chocolate being used.

This is a chocolate truffle croquembouche I did 3 years ago in Le Cordon Bleu, Sydney
