I’ve been experimenting with some interesting things this summer. For Mother’s Day, I did an awesome post on baking with edible flowers. Lately, I’ve been playing around with edible glitter and practicing a neon marbled look for coating ganache truffles. I know that you are probably thinking I’ve LOST MY MIND and, Wait! There is EDIBLE GLITTER?! Well yes, there is! I’m happy to tell you I have been playing around with the unicorn of the food world: edible glitter! Two things that are big right now in fashion and home decor are 1.) neon clothing and accessories 2.) marbled ANYTHING. I not only follow food trends, but try to stay in the know on fashion and decor to keep my experiments going. One day, I got the most amazing idea to do a swirl coating in neon food colors for some ganache truffles. They turned out yummy, but needed a little something extra special so I added some edible glitter to the tops. Behold, my recipe for Neon Swirled Truffles with Edible Glitter.
The great thing about this recipe is that it is very easy and fun! If you have kids, this would be a great one to work on with them. They will love the vivid colors, glitter, and chocolate so invite them to help you make the swirls in the white chocolate coating! You will just need to assist them with the covering the truffles immediately after the desired marbled effect is achieved because the coating hardens very quickly!
