  • Afterward, put them into the fridge for several hours (about 8 hours). 

Sealing the chocolate hollows

  • Now melt the remaining couverture in a water bath.
  • Take the cooled hollow spheres out of the fridge and seal them with your chosen sealing tool (squeeze bottle, syringe, or dropper). 
  • Place the sealed chocolates in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until firm.

Coating and decorating the truffles

  • Use the already melted chocolate from the sealing for the coating.
  • Prepare a cooling grid or parchment paper to place the chocolates to dry.
  • Now, one by one, take the chocolates, dip them into the tempered chocolate coating and then carefully lift them out.
  • Let the excess chocolate drip off briefly and place them carefully on the cooling grid or wax paper.
  • While the chocolate coating is still soft and moist, you can decorate your eggnog pralines with holiday sprinkles according to your taste.
