TRUFFLES VS BALLS

Without boring you to tears, it’s rather really simple. Even though some will argue that a truffle must consist of two things – chocolate and cream – I disagree. I think a truffle can be anything you like as long as it is rolled into a ball and either dipped in melted chocolate or rolled into something like coconut, graham crumbs or even cocoa.

The great thing about truffles is that they are no-bake. That means that anyone can make them! They’re great for those younger home-cooks who are just learning their way around a kitchen. They can make delicious treats without having to turn on the oven. Truffles are certainly a well-loved treat, so in most cases, they are well received too!

In contrast, a ball can be a truffle-type confection as well, but can also come in the form of a cookie. Most ball type recipes, however, are no bake as well, but don’t necessarily have that chocolate and cream combination.
