Will I need to provide any equipment?
You’ll need: a whole tub of double or soya cream, a microwave or a hob, mixing bowl and a mixing spoon.
How many truffles will each kit make?
Approximately 30-40 truffles (slightly larger than a Malteser size!)
How many kits can I order?
How will I know what to do?
Each kit contains step-by-step expert instructions created by Chocolate Collective chocolatiers.
Do you deliver nationally?
Yes, we deliver kits anywhere in the UK.
How long does delivery take?
This depends on the day you order but all deliveries will be made by courier.
What about allergens?
Both our milk and dark chocolate kits are gluten free. The dark contains soya lecithin and may contain traces of milk ingredients. The milk contains soya lecithin and milk ingredients.
Are the kits suitable for all ages?
The kits are suitable for all ages, but children will need to be supervised by an adult.
How long will it take to create my truffles?
As long as you like! The one part of the process which does take some time is getting the ganache set to a consistency ready for making into circular truffle shapes. Top tip: If you open a window and let in fresh air or place the ganache in a fridge this will help speed up the process.
Are there any other considerations I need to think about?
When you melt the chocolate don’t have the microwave above a 700watt setting as this burns the chocolate very quickly. Stir the chocolate frequently every couple of minutes when melting it. Let the chocolate cool a little before mixing with the cream, especially when children are involved.
