Yesterday was my birthday so I made myself some white chocolat (I loooove white chocolat) truffles. They were really easy to make: I've melted 400g of white chocolat in 400 g sweet condensed milk. Then I've put it in the freezer.

Soooo
...
They turned out quite delicious, but very sticky when not ice cold. Has anybody an idea what I should do to make them not that fast melting? It would be great to give them to some friends (who are also white choc-aholics) as a present, but I don't want to give them like this of course Roll Eyes

Here they are  Tongue



Thanx a lot for the help (I am a bad cook Lips sealed)

...maybe you could melt some more white chocolate separately and then coat the chilled truffles with it??? ...then the melty bits would be inside where it's safe?Huh

even though i much prefer my chocolate chocolatey, these DO look yummy  Grin

That sounds like a good plan but I have no idea how to coat something with chocolate?  Smiley Take them on a toothpick and than dip them in the hot melted chocolate? But how you take the toothpick away that it's not visible?  Roll Eyes

Meanwhile I've came up with the idea of cutting them in to "1 cm" slices (most of the truffles I made look more like little sausages  Grin


and put them on a mikado cookie (cookie in Belgium that is like a stick?)


Then they are easier to swallow in one time  Tongue

I am happy you like the look of them, it is really rare to find me in the kitchen, heheh  Grin

you could roll them into balls either with your hands or with a little ice cream scoop and then roll them into coconut, cocoa powder, powdered sugar,crushed nuts, etc... or you could dip them into melted chocolate.

The only way I have found to 'dip' truffles that works is to have latex gloves, put some chocolate in your one hand and roll the truffle around in your hand.  Messy but effective. Then you drop them in the coating as thumbkin mentions

if you do go with the toothpick method, you have to put some chocolate in a pastry bag and put a little swirl over the hole (think of how chocolate covered cherries look....)
