what is a substitute for shortening?
Shortening works great in this recipe, however, if you are looking for a substitute, we recommend using vegetable oil.
You could also use butter, but we have found vegetable oil makes a great substitute.
how to properly dip your truffles in chocolate
-First things first. Your truffles have to be frozen or cold. If they are not frozen or cold, they will be mis-shapen, and they will fall apart in the warm chocolate.
Then your chocolate will have peanut butter truffle smears in it. I have learned from personal experience.
-Get your chocolate. I used Hershey’s chocolate chips, but you could also use a bark.
I microwaved mine for 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until smooth.
Don’t let any moisture get into your melted chocolate or it will get a weird texture, and won’t work for dipping.
-For dipping, one of our tricks is to use a plastic fork and break off the middle tines. Just leaving the two on each end. It kind of looks like a hand doing a “rock on” sign.
-Drop the frozen ball into the chocolate and then carefully lift out with the fork invention, tapping the side of the bowl to let the excess chocolate drip off.
-Set them on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. And let it set up, before adding the peanut butter drizzle.
