Hi, I'm Anne Shaeffer with Sulpice Chocolat, and today I'm going to show you how to make milk chocolate ganache truffles. So for the milk chocolate truffles, what you want to do is start by putting one third cup of heavy cream in a little pan on the stove and you're just going to want to heat it up to the point where it gets nice and hot because you don't want it to boil because too much of the liquid is going to evaporate. OK so that looks pretty good. Let's pour our heavy, hot cream on top of 12 ounces of chopped up milk chocolate. And what I did is take the milk chocolate and kind of start to heat it up in the microwave. Not too much, we don't want it to be liquidy, but you want to heat it up a bit because there's not very much cream that's going to be mixed in with this guy. So if you don't mix it premelted, then there's a chance your truffles won't melt all the way. After you let the cream sit on top of the chopped up milk chocolate for a little bit, you're going to start to notice that it melts, and that's really good. So what you're going to want to do is start to just blend together the cream and the milk chocolate. It's going to come kind of slowly, but what you want to do is keep blending it in in the same direction. Because that's going to help to make the truffle nice and smooth. So you're just going to slowly incorporate it. So I just took this chocolate ganache out of the refrigerator. It's been sitting there for about one and a half to three hours just until it's nice and firmly set. Now I'm going to go ahead and start rolling them in some pecans. So we're just going to go ahead and take a scoop of this solid ganache right out, put it in our hands. Just roll it into a nice little ball. Pop them in the pecans and roll them up a bit. You can do whatever you want. You know these little truffles always look nice in some coconut or in some cocoa powder. The only thing I don't recommend you roll them in is powdered sugar because powdered sugar on top of milk chocolate or dark chocolate is just going to have a result where is looks a little gray and you don't want something that looks gray because it's not appetizing. Here you go. And the great thing about these truffles is that they're a simple easy to make treat that is sure to impress your friends and family. Thanks so much for watching, I'm Anne Shaeffer with Sulpice Chocolat, and have a great day.
