Homemade Chocolate Truffles - Comfort Food Plus!

Homemade Chocolate Truffles can be as great as the ones sold in the shops – and in my extremely unbiased opinion..the best ones are homemade.

Truffles can be expensive when bought from the dessert shop. If you’re thinking of giving them as gifts, then you’re gonna spend a lot! Unless you make it at home. What’s great is that you can choose and make your own version, pick different flavours and make it fit your taste!

This Simple Homemade Truffles Recipe is heavenly and just as decadent!

All you need is a short trip to the supermarket and put your baking gloves on!

Method

  1. In a double boiler over barely simmering water, combine ingredients: chocolate, butter and heavy cream. Heat until chocolate is melted then stir until you have a smooth mixture.
  2. Remove from heat and then whisk in vanilla.
  3. Pour into a shallow casserole dish and cool to room temperature.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 hours. If you refrigerate longer than two hours, the mixture will be too hard to work with. If this occurs, allow the mixture to sit at room temperature until they are smooth enough.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Using a small scoop (2 teaspoons) or a melon baller, scoop out chocolate mixture, roll into one inch balls, and place on prepared baking sheet.
  7. Continue with remaining chocolate mixture.
  8. Roll balls in your desired coating, I typically use high quality sweetened cocoa powder such as Scharffen Berger.
  9. Refrigerate truffles until it's ready to serve.

Notes

 Recipe Hints And Tips:
  • Homemade Chocolate Truffles can be frozen for up to four months. Place them in a line inside Glad containers with enough space to separate them then wrap it with cling wrap.
  • If you are infusing truffles with spirits make sure to let the chocolate cool enough, so the heat does not burn off the alcohol. Try placing a small dab of chocolate on your lips, if it’s warm and not hot the truffle mixture is ready to be infused.
