Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Chop 6 oz. of the chocolate; set aside. Bring cream to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat; remove from heat. Add chopped chocolate and butter; stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cover and freeze 1 to 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.
  • Use teaspoon to scoop chocolate mixture into 24 balls, each about 1 inch in diameter; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. Freeze 20 min.
  • Chop remaining 6 oz. chocolate; place in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate is partially melted; stir until chocolate is completely melted. Carefully dip each ball in chocolate, then return to baking sheet. Drizzle with any remaining chocolate. Refrigerate 30 min. or until firm.

Size Wise

Chocolate truffles make a sweet treat that is perfect for gift giving or for serving on a special occasion.

Variation

Omit 6 oz. of the chocolate. Prepare and freeze truffles as directed, then roll in powdered sugar or cocoa powder instead of dipping in the melted chocolate.

Special Extra

Add 2 Tbsp. orange-flavored liqueur to the warm cream with the chopped chocolate and butter.

    I've been making variations of this recipe for two years now. I use the measurements given here and experiment with different chocolates and liquors. I've made it with Malibu (dark chocolate ganache with Malibu rum, covered in white chocolate, rolled in coconut), Baileys (I usually use all milk chocolate), Pumpkin Spice Liquor (Hiram Walker Pumpkin Spice in white chocolate ganache, covered with dark chocolate). Mint (with creme de menthe or peppermint schnapps, crushed peppermints sprinkled on top). It's never ever been anything but delicious. For even sizing and rounder shape, i recommend using a melon baller (I use the small end).

    the secret to making truffles is to chill the mixture or even freeze it before trying to shape into balls. this makes them much easier to handle.
