Chocolate Truffles
Yields: 24 small truffles
Fudgy with a rich chocolate flavor, these classic bite-size truffles are a breeze to make and need only a handful of simple ingredients.
  • 4 ounces (115g) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 4 ounces (115g) milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup (120 ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick or 30g) butter, cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (either natural or Dutch-Processed is fine), for coating truffles
  1. In a medium heat-proof bowl, place the chopped bittersweet and milk chocolate. Set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the heavy cream and butter to a low boil. Remove from the heat and pour the mixture over the chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, stir mixture until melted and smooth. Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  2. Place cocoa powder in a small bowl. Take chocolate mixture out of the fridge. Using an ice cream scoop, spoon, or melon baller, scoop out a section and form into 1-inch balls with your hands. Roll each ball in cocoa coating.
  3. Store truffles in fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
  4. Truffles can be frozen for up to a month. To thaw, leave them in the fridge overnight.
