A Note About Candy Food Coloring
By Cheryl Sandberg
Easter is coming and of course my son is having an Easter party
at his school. Everyone knows me as the 'chocolate lady' and has certain
expectations. Do I dare arrive with something OTHER than chocolate? Oh,
I better not. Better play it safe, the natives are restless! Looking around
for ideas, I know I want to use some of the liquid candy coloring, after all
it's Spring. It's Easter! White Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs! Why not?
I used orange, yellow and green liquid candy coloring and colored some white chocolate. I used my molded truffle mold
after someone mentioned at one of my classes that it looked like half
an Easter egg. I brushed the different colored white chocolate into the
mold and let it harden. I filled the mold all of the way with melted white
chocolate. I let the chocolate sit there for 5 minutes, then poured out the
remainder. This left an outer 'shell'. (No pun intended.) Then I put the
mold in the freezer for 10 minutes.
I made the basic truffle
ganache and scooped it out into small balls. I placed the small balls
of ganache into the egg shells colored with the candy food coloring. I
then pressed the balls deep into the shells, then backfilled the mold
with white chocolate and stuck it back into the freezer. Then I popped
them out and placed them on top of a candy cup. White Chocolate Truffle
They were a big hit at the party! (Too bad
I didn't make any for the parents!)
Additional Liquid Candy Coloring Tips
Use a drop of red Lorann's liquid candy coloring in the white
chocolate and add to the top of your truffle mold before you put the dark
chocolate in. Let it dry. Get creative! After adding the red liquid candy coloring,
add some white chocolate on top of it for a layered look. Then add your
dark chocolate to make your molded truffle as normal. Isn't that beautiful?
Lorann's liquid candy coloring is great for adding some color
to the drizzle on the top of your truffles. Drizzle pink-white chocolate
over your berries for a low fat beautiful dessert.
Don't add too much Lorann's candy coloring; it does stain your lips if it is too dark. The candy colors may also change the flavor of the white chocolate. If you do use a lot of coloring, use in very small quantities on your candies.
