I made a filling for coconut truffles that was meant to freeze so I could shape it into balls. This has not happened, it is still tacky and will not keep a ball shape. How do people make soft centred round truffles when they can't freeze the filling? I was thinking about a chocolate mould but how would you up end each one without the filling coming out?

The coconut filling is sooooooo good that I really want to make this recipe work.

Why can't you freeze/chill it?

I would say you have an uphill task of working with chocolate in warm weather.

I normally chill overnight and use a melon baller to shape. I lay the on a plate with cocoa/icing sugar/nuts/whatever and jiggle the plate to cover them. I minimize touching because warm hands will just melt the chocolate and create more mess.

The composition of the filling means it won't freeze. It's been in the freezer for 3 days now and is a firm as it will ever get but not firm enough to keep a ball shape.

Some of my soft truffles don't stay in a pretty ball shape.  It's a rustic charm laughing2.gif

Handle it as little as possible or add something to stiffen the mix.

You could get real fancy and make little choc cups and then pipe the coconut filling in?
