Dipping the truffles in chocolate takes some patience, here are some tips that I found helpful…

  1. I like using White Almond Bark, it melts good and dipping is easy with it. However, because of the dark color of the truffles, it doesn’t coat completely.
  2. Add sprinkles not only because it’s fun, but it also hides any imperfections that the chocolate doesn’t cover.
  3. Work with just a small amount of melted chocolate at a time. Again, because of the dark color of truffles, there are small amounts that fall off into the chocolate.
  4. I like working with Wilton Candy Melts, but they are thicker than Almond Bark. If you find that your chocolate is thick, add a very small amount of cooking oil at a time and stir well until you get the desired consistency.
  5. Be sure to have all your sprinkles ready to go, the dipping process moves very quickly.
  6. Use the fork and knife method when dipping, use the fork to dip the truffles and let the excess chocolate drain between the fork back into the bowl. Then use a knife to gently move the truffle from the fork to the lined cookie sheet.
