I wanted to make some chocolate truffles for a long time, but now I had the chance and you can find here 10 easy recipes for the perfect chocolate box, great as a present or to enjoy yourself. No worries, they are all easily made without big practice. 

 

Important is to use good chocolate* as it really makes a difference for the taste and your life will be so much easier to temper the chocolate. For some of the I used chocolate shells*, which I did not make myself, but if you like you can du this as well on your own, with chocolate molds*

 

In general helpful for making chocolates is to have some basic tools like a chocolate dipping tool*, small squeezer bottles* with a small* and a very small tip*, a cooling rack* and a baking mat*
