  3. Adria Author says:

    Hi Ela,
    I have a quick question: why the chocolate seized? I follow the exact steps but it didn’t work. Do you have any ideas, please?

    I am not finding any caramel ingredient just the word “caramel color” in step one of the directions…one of the photos shows a plate of truffles some rolled in cocoa pwd the other rolled in perhaps ground almonds -or is it some other ingredient. Would love calcification so I can be successful in making these…Thanks

      the caramel is made first.. by melting sugar until turns into caramel.. then you add chocolate… and so on.. so the caramel is composed with the mixture.. I only rolled them in cocoa powder and grated chocolate.. but feel free to roll them in ground almonds if you like best
