I'll have to convince BLL to follow your directions and make some, white chocolate with orange zest!



Since, as you probably know, white chocolate isn't real chocolate,
you most likely won't notice any potentiation effects from it.

I'm sure they'll taste good though :thumbup:

Has anyone considered substituting sprinkles for pop-rocks? I hear they add extra magic :rasta:

Wow. I bow to your ultimate mushroom confectionary technique. Very impressive. I like to do the quick and dirty mushroom chocolates with the "candy melts", but I might have to treat myself some time real soon.

the beauty of em is that if you want like 2 grams in it of dry material. you can make em big enough and not worry about the size of your ice cube tray or mold. so the chocolate to material ratio can be whatever it needs to be!


always seems to be a problem when you add too much dry material. and if you have a certain size mold that only holds a certain amount of volume. you can easily add too much dry material and have some chunky dry chocolates. this allows your flexibility and ability to increase the size to accommodate adding more dry material. i always have problems upwards of 1.5 gram dry per chocolate and up. and most of the time, you want to eat one and trip real hard. so i think this will help!

hey eats thanks for fixing the corrupted photos in that post :thumbup:

you guys should definitely try making them, they're really delicious, can hardly taste the mushrooms, and each 1g truffle feels a lot stronger than 1g. 2 truffles totals 2g, but it feels more like 3-3.5g. the chocolate just does something really special :D and yeah, you can change up the ratio however you like, you could probably get even 3g into each of 80 truffles of the same size, they'd just taste a lot more mushroomy! glad i've inspired you, i hope you make them! they're very easy to do, hard to mess up :)

Once I get the key ingredient for this recipe I will be making these. Thanks for enticing me to bake, as I rarely do that kind. :eusa_clap:bow::bow::eusa_droo

And, if you think you might anyway, you can make them sans mushrooms for a practice round! <-- this is probably what I am doing.

feral, i'm so lame i didn't see this post til bri brought it back from the dead. sorry!

the taste is pretty good man. i've made 1g in large truffles and 1g in smaller truffles (which makes the mushrooms more concentrated), and the large ones are definitely better. 1g in a small truffle kinda tastes too mushroomy IMO.

i want to eat my computer screen! :amazed:

awesome.

:bow:

i'm a big fan of stealthy ways to store the fruits of my mycological labor. keeping massive amounts of mushrooms around the house isn't my style, so i'm trying to come up with more things to do with them!

well, here's a recipe for magic chocolate-kaluha-mint truffles for anyone wanting to try something fun with their dried mushrooms. truffles are just about the easiest chocolate treat you can make, especially by this method (no need for a double boiler here).

you can change the flavorings any way you like - substitute mint or kaluha with any sort of extracts, booze, nuts, etc you prefer. i just happen to like kaluha and mint. :)

i concur, bosshog. there is definitely NO loss of potency - if anything, it increases (synergistic effects with the alkaloids in the chocolate, i presume).

btw thanks everyone for the comments :eusa_clap hope you guys try it and post some pics!


Great Tek MyDarling, thanks for sharing! :bow::headbang:

BTW, is good to know about no loss of potency, I was a bit scared of it ... after 1 year ... are they still stronger ? :greenboun:dance:

I've made some chocolates yesterday and I hope to try it sooner! :amazed:
