Make lasting replicas of your favourite truffles – there‘s nothing sinful about this feast and it makes a great present too!

    Hmmm, they look good enough to eat! Fancy, exquisite-looking chocolate creations for putting round your neck? Yes, thats right! But the good thing about these chocolates is that, because theyre made out of FIMO classic, they wont melt or smear. Nevertheless, the coconut balls, nougat strips etc. look like theyve just come out of a box. Make lasting replicas of your favourite truffles theres nothing sinful about this feast and it makes a great present too!

  • Step 1Knead one strip of white, half a strip of chocolate and a quarter of a strip of golden yellow together. To do so, repeatedly roll out to a long string, fold up again and twist. Continue doing this until you are left with a uniform-coloured clay which looks like milk chocolate.

    Step 3For the coconut flakes, make a sausage out of one strip of white FIMO and harden it. Once cool, make small flakes by grating the FIMO sausage using the nutmeg grater.

    Step 2Using this mixed clay, make balls approx. 2-3 cm in diameter and then carefully flatten them to give them a truffle shape. Roll a small piece of chocolate to a long, thin string. Use it to decorate the light-brown truffles however you like.

    Step 4For each coconut truffle, make a ball out of half a strip of chocolate and then roll it in the white flakes until it is covered in them.

  • Step 7Now bake all of the truffles in the oven for 30 minutes at 110C to harden. After cooling, carefully remove the FIMO from the aluminium moulds. String the truffles onto the necklace in whatever order you like.

    TIP: To keep the truffles in place on the necklace, make knots in the cord directly before and behind each one.

    Step 5Now, using the clay machine or acrylic roller, roll out a 3-4 mm thick sheet of white FIMO. Cut out a circle the same size as the base of the alumi-nium mould and a strip to match the height. Place the circle on the base and cover the inside wall of the mould with the strip. Cut as precisely as possible and take care that the FIMO does not overlap. Using a needle, press grooves into the white strip around the sides.

    Step 6Place different already made truffles in the FIMO-lined moulds and make holes straight through the chocolates and their aluminium casings. Leave some of the truffles without a case and make holes through these ones too. Also ensure that the holes are large enough for the string or cord to fit through later.
