The Kooyah: Big Brother Bee’s Truffle?

I’m sitting here eating leftover soup while waiting for The Kooyah Truffle to set in the fridge. I’m practicing my truffling skills for The Sweet Sweet Business. I started them last night… with peanut butter. OM NOM NOM. I guess.

I say “I guess” because I’m kinda still sick of peanut butter. But when it comes to Big Brother Bee, it is definitely what I think of when I think of his kind of chocolates. He loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so for The Sweet, Sweet Business I figure he’d be perfect inspiration for a sweet.

“Kooyah” is the way I pronounce the Filipino word for Big Brother, which is actually spelled “Kuya.” At ten years older than I am, he’s the oldest! of the three of us. There’s only a year and a half between Big Sister Bee and myself.

Anyways, I left the filling to set overnight and went about making the ganache. Let me just say those Wilton candy melts are definitely easier to work with than actual chocolate, but I wanted to use the choco I had. I rolled the filling in the ganache and made a hot mess of things, but it’s all good. I’m still in the testing phase. Plus I cheated on the peanut butter, only using Skippy. I want to handmake it once I start up ze biz.

I tried my hand at decorating today as well. I used a white chip drizzle… It too needs work, but I still say not bad for my first time with a pastry bag and earthquake shaking hands. I hope they taste good!

Drizzling skills!

Drizzling skills?
