  • Notes:

    Make a couple weeks in advance. These truffles can be made a couple weeks ahead and stored in a cool dry place, covered.

    Storing truffles: These can be stored at room temperature in a cool dry place away from temperature changes.

    Releasing truffles from silicone mold. Make sure truffles are cooled, then flex the mold back and forth for truffles to pop out.

    Melting Candy Melts Candy: Use a low temperature setting on the microwave. Melt candy melts candy for 2 minutes at 40% then stir and check consistency. Place back in the microwave for an additional minute then remove and stir.

    To thin Candy Melts Candy: Thin Candy Melts Candy by using EZ Thin. Add 2 tablespoons to 12 oz. melted candy, and stir until completely incorporated. If you’re using less than 12 oz. of melted candy, start with a small amount of EZ Thin, then continue adding until you achieve the correct consistency.

    You can also thin out your melted candy with solid vegetable shortening (2 tablespoons per 12 oz. bag). Do not use liquid vegetable oil, butter, milk, water or any other liquid to thin your candy. These will all cause your candy to break or seize, rendering it unusable. This can also happen if your candy is burned or overheated.

    Colored Ganache: Looking for a colorful ganache? You can make this ganache out of any of Candy Melts Candy!
