What are chocolate truffles

You’ve probably never had a homemade truffle. They are round chocolate balls with a rich chocolate ganache center that melts in your mouth.

Truffles get their name because they resemble edible fungi from the genus Tuber that are popular in gourmet cuisine. The classic chocolate confection costs much less!

In chocolate shops, truffles and bonbons have similar shapes and are often sold together. Bonbons are covered in a chocolate fondant, while the candy inside is filled with liqueur. Truffles are chocolate-filled and usually coated with another ingredient.

You can make chocolate truffles by making a chocolate ganache, a mixture of melted chocolate and coconut or cream milk.

The chocolate is cooled and then coated with cocoa powder or whatever you desire.

You can use sugar-free chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips to make truffles with more antioxidants or healthier. White chocolate works as well.

This recipe uses only natural ingredients. This recipe does not require powdered sugar or butter, coconut oil, corn syrup, or sweetened condensed Milk.

Mint: Stir in 1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint oil to the chocolate.

Espresso truffles: Add one teaspoon of instant espresso, regular or decaf.

Raspberry — Instead of rolling into balls, place the fresh raspberry onto a fork or a spoon and cover with chocolate ganache. Refrigerate or freeze until firm.

Almond Butter – Mix 2 tablespoons of almond or peanut butter with the cream.

Oreo Truffles Instead of cocoa, roll the chocolate sandwich cookies in crushed before refrigerating.

Coconut- Roll the truffles finished in coconut flakes. Make these Coconut Balls.

Orange truffles_ Add the zest from one orange to the melted chocolate before chilling or freezing until firm.

Add ground cinnamon, powdered ginger, finely chopped candied pecans or pistachios, sea salt, or protein powder. You can also add a teaspoon each of amaretto or rum.

You can’t decide on which version to pick? Make an assortment box with all the flavors. You can turn your kitchen into Godiva, Lindt, or Russell Stover.

Place the balls onto a plate lined with parchment and place in the refrigerator or freezer until you are ready to serve.

Storage Tips

It is OK to leave the truffles on a counter for several hours during a party, indoors or outdoors on a fantastic day.

Wrap them and give them as gifts to your friends and family for birthdays, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or other occasions.

You can ship truffles by freezing them and sending them overnight. Buy cold packs to keep the truffles from melting in the mail.

Leftovers (leftovers?) You can store pieces in the fridge or freezer for up to two months. You can also send me leftover truffles, and I will take care of them.

Vegan Chocolate Truffles

Coconut cream, cashew milk, or coconut full-fat canned Milk can make coconut milk truffles dairy-free and vegan.

Use a non-dairy brand of heavy cream in place of dairy whipping. What to do with leftover cream? Make Vegan Chocolate mousse.

No-cook chocolate truffles make a stunning decoration for frosted cupcakes, a Keto Cake, or a double-layer vegan chocolate cake.

Ingredients

8 oz semi-sweet or dark chocolate

Half a cup of coconut or heavy cream

Optional 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Optional pinch salt

Instructions

Scroll down to the earlier part of this post for many flavor ideas, including raspberry, coffee, coconut, and peppermint truffle. Chop the chocolate finely to make it melt faster and more evenly. Use only full-fat coconut milk if you’re using it in a can. Heat the cream or Milk just enough to bring it to a boil. Pour the chocolate over, add the vanilla and salt if you’re using it, and stir until smooth. Refrigerate for at least two hours or until the chocolate is firm enough to roll into balls or scoop them out with your hands. Mini cookie scoop. Roll truffles, if desired, in cocoa powder or sprinkles. You can also roll them in coconut, almonds, walnuts, crushed, powdered, or melted sugar or chocolate. Place on a parchment-lined plate and freeze or refrigerate until ready to serve. The leftover truffles can stay in the refrigerator for up to two months.
