1 In a medium pot, combine the cream and glucose and bring to a boil over medium heat.

2 Pour the hot cream mixture over the chopped couverture and set aside undisturbed for 1 minute.

3 Using a spatula, stir in small circles at first, then gradually in wider circles to form a ganache.

4 Cool the mixture to 90&F/32.2&C. Blend in the butter using an immersion blender.

5 Cover with plastic wrap and let cool to 86&F/30&C.

6 When the mixture reaches the proper temperature, place in a pastry bag with a small hole cut in the tip and pipe into the shells. Let set overnight at room temperature.

7 Cap the truffles with the milk couverture once the ganache has completely set.

8 Use a dipping fork to dip the truffles in the milk couverture.

9 Before the couverture sets, place the truffles on a cooling rack and roll in a Z motion, using a dipping fork, to create spikes. Let set at room temperature.

10 Store in an airtight container at 57& to 61&F/13.9& to 16.1&C in a dark, dry place.
