    I am sometimes a purist, and I know that traditional truffles aren't round. But...I like the look of a perfect sphere. Who has experience achieving this and how did you do it? Chocoflex ganache mold? Magnetic truffle mold? Pre-made truffle shells? Other method?

    Thanks all,

    I used silicone molds, froze them rock solid, then fused two halves together.
