Selling homemade truffles?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone sold their truffles? Most truffles have a ganache type center and ganache is a perishable product, so do you add a preservative of some kind or just inform the person buying them that they are only shelf stable for a certain time?

Thanks for any help

I don't sell my truffles but I would if someone wanted to buy them. I have given them as gifts, though, and I just let them know that they are only good for a certain amount of time and that they need to be refridgerated.

How much would you sell them for, and do you have a good recipe?

When it comes to what I charge for my items, I cost them out. Add up all the cost of ingredients to make a recipe, divide by how many items you get from that recipe, then add in your charge for time etc. Each recipe could be different depending on what is in it. If you have ever made chocolates by hand you will know how much time is involved. Also demographics play a big part, I charge more than the local grocery store, but not too much still have to stay competitive. If you live in a small town you probably won't be able to charge big city price. Still working on recipes.

so how much do you charge? do you charge by the lb, or by units?

In many states, you need to a have a state certified and inspected scale to sell by the pound (or by weight in general).  You may be better off selling by the piece.
