Fork Dipping Technique For Newbies

Allow The Truffle To Form A Hard Coating 

The biggest problem that occurs is when you try to coat your truffle with warm chocolate. It usually melts or breaks down into pieces. It is important to give some time to your truffle to cool down and form a hard coating to avoid such a situation. For that, you can place it in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, or if you have enough time for preparation, then leaving it at room temperature for a night is the best option. This period will help in forming the hard topping or skin, which does not allow it to melt down when poured in hot chocolate.
