Chocolate truffles recipe

Do you like chocolates like I do? :) I believe most of the people do. That's why I'd like to share a great chocolate truffle recipe. The initially, it was shared by one of my team mate Inessa who runs Vintageer shop on Etsy. I was trying to follow her idea, but unfortunately, it didn't work for me. So I had to adjust it.

Chocolate truffles recipe

For these chocolate truffles recipe, you 'll need:
  • 1 1/3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips or just chocolate pieces
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • Whole nuts or pieces (optional)
  • Cognac, liquor, essence (optional). I added 1 tsp of orange essence and 1 tbsp of orange liquor
  • Cocoa powder to dust the truffles
  • Candy paper cups

Chocolate truffles recipe

Mix in a bowl the chocolate tips and the cream. Pick a bowl based on how you are going to heat the chocolate truffles mixture. I microwaved, so for me plastic one was better. Also, you can just heat it on a stove over low heat.

Mix the chocolate truffles mixture until smooth. Add liquor and nuts pieces (those are optional).

Mix it again, cover with plastic wrap and put in a fridge for several hours. I kept overnight. The mixture should become like a play doh.

Than, it's time to form the truffles. Dust hands with cocoa powder. Scoop approximately 1 or 1 and half tsp of the mixture.

Chocolate truffles recipe

If you put nuts pieces, just roll a ball of the chocolate and dust it with cocoa powder. Otherwise, you can add a hole nut inside and roll a truffle. Dust it with cocoa powder.

Also, the truffles can be dusted with ground nuts. Place the chocolate truffles in paper candy cups and serve.

Enjoy those melting rich chocolate taste!
