Modeling Chocolate has become the decorating medium that stole my heart in 2013.
I can't believe that it took me so long to discover the beauty and benefits to decorating, sculpting and enrobing cakes and confections with modeling chocolate,
A few weeks ago, as I was getting ready to celebrating Thanksgiving, I wanted to make something different, and the idea of rich chocolate and peanut butter came to mind!
I'm a great planner, and very much dislike rushing and fixing last minute confections, while getting ready to host...this is the reason why I decided to make "Acorn shaped" Truffles that could be made ahead of time!
As I explored different ideas on how to top and texture my truffles top, the idea of modeling chocolate came to mind :)...and because I LOVE peanut butter...voila!, my Peanut Butter Modeling Chocolate recipe was born!!!
Today, Cake Central Magazine, THE "all cake related" online site, is sharing this recipe with their HUGE community of devoted and SUPER talented decorators and bakers around the world!!!
Scroll down to see my original "Acorn Truffles" recipe and step by step instructions,
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I (and my family) do,
Send me your questions and comments. I would love to help :)
