How to fill chocolate truffles

This simple tutorial on how to fill chocolates come from our good friends at Robert's confectionery. Filling chocolates is easy and fun to do. They make a great gift. Just be sure you choose a mould that is deep enough to accept your filling.

Step 1. Using a paintbrush, small teaspoon or your finger, paint the base and sides of the mould so that you form a chocolate shell.  Let it set for a few minutes.

Step 2.  Place a small amount (teaspoon size) of fondant creme into the middle of the shell.  Ensure you don't overfill the mould with fondant otherwise it will make it difficult to fill with chocolate and the fondant will burst out of your finished chocolate.

Step 3.  Fill the remainder of the mould with melted chocolate.  Gentle tap it on the bench to remove any air bubbles and let it set.
