Round Truffles

Recommended Posts

I want to make round truffles, but my hands are too hot. When I roll the ganache, the chocolate melts and the balls look awful. They setup to the firmness I want, but its a mess, even when I put two sets of gloves on.

 

I've tried rolling spheres on my fingers instead of my palms. I've purchased small ice cream scoops and melon ballers, but still can't get a nicely rounded ganache sphere.

 

Any ideas on other tools or methods I can use? 

 

I appreciate it!

I thought truffles were supposed to look like the ones the pigs dig up in France!  So they are not supposed to be round.
