A Symphony or rather a selection of fresh cream chocolate truffles, this is my basic recipe with a few indulgent added extras.......such as toasted almonds, stem ginger with brandy or rum! These decadent rich truffles are perfect to finish of a dinner party with, especially if you serve them on a Truffle Tree - A Partridge in a Chocolate Truffle Tree! Do try to use very high quality minimum 70% solids chocolate, it really does make such a difference to the taste. They also freeze very well - which means you can make them in advance and at leisure; they only take about 1 hour to defrost at room temperature.
