Ingredients For Chocolate Truffles
These chocolate truffles contain just 3 ingredients butter, powdered sugar, and cocoa.
Plus something to coat them in (or you can eat them plain too if you want to).
I have made these truffles for close to 20 years and I am still discovering yummy things to coat them with. I have dipped them in chocolate and rolled them in coconut or chocolate sprinkles. The day I took photos for this shot though we rolled them in crushed Oreos and peppermint candies.
Supplies Needed To Make Chocolate Truffles
Glass or metal bowl.
A metal spoon ( a serving spoon like this one works well, just a bit bigger than a regular spoon but not too big).
Flat bottomed bowls such as a pasta bowl to place coatings.
I have made these truffles for close to 20 years and I am still discovering yummy things to coat them with. I have dipped them in chocolate and rolled them in coconut and sprinkles.
But this year I rolled them in crushed peppermint candies and Oreo cookies.
The list of ingredients and steps are below but here are a few tips.
First always make sure to take your butter out hours before you intend to make truffles so that is soft.
Second cut the butter up into small pieces and use the back of a metal spoon to blend it in the other ingredients.
Wash your hands really well and then in the final stages of blending, get them right in the dough and mash the ingredients together until they form a solid mass of soft dough
One last tip, don’t make your truffles too large you want people to be able to pop them in their mouth and enjoy.
