Homemade Chocolate Truffles

Now that Christmas time is over does that mean no more homemade goodies of course NOT! You probably didn’t get your chocolate fix from all the hoilday gift baskets that get sent to your work but not to worry, here is a simple recipe for truffles! Best part of all is not too much time needed and you don’t even need to share but you can:

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 oz of a quality chocolate bars (very finely chopped)
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream or coconut milk (full fat)
  • 1 teaspoon Frangelico Hazelnut liqour or Vanillia Extract
  • Toppings unsweetened cocoa powder, sprinkles, crushed nuts, coconut flakes, melted chocolate

DIRECTIONS

1. Chop the chocolate finely with a sharp, serrated knife. Place in a small, heatproof mixing bowl.

2. Heat the heavy cream or cocnut milk in a small saucepan, just until it starts to boil. Remove from heat immediately and pour over the chopped chocolate. Let the mixture sit for 30 seconds, then add Frangelico or vanilla extract carefully whisk together until the chocolate is completely melted.

3. Set aside in the fridge for one to two hours until chocolate mixture is solid but still easy to scoop.

4. One at a time, crush any nut toppings in a food processor (separately, not together). Place in separate flat dishes to be able to roll truffles.

5. Use a melon baller, scoop round balls of the chilled chocolate mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll each scoop of chocolate in hands to make a smooth, round ball.

6. Roll each ball of chocolate in the topping of your choice, serve at room temperature and enjoy!
