Handmade Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Recently I was sent a number of scrumptious products from Rodelle. Rodelle has created premier baking and cooking essentials since 1936.

The company, and myself, believe that choosing premier ingredients is the way for avid chefs to make a difference in their recipes year round.

That’s why I decided to use these products to create a gorgeous treat.

 

Chocolate Truffles Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces chocolate (high quality, 62% cacao or higher)
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

The use of high quality and organic ingredients is a personal preference of mine, but any alternative will work. I used an organic chocolate with 85% cocoa.

First you will want to chop your chocolate into small pieces.

Next you will heat your heavy whipping cream to a simmer, making sure you stir the cream. You will then pour the cream and vanilla over your chopped chocolate.

Allow the cream to sit over the chocolate for 5 minutes.

Then stir the mixture and allow it to sit on your counter and cool for a half an hour.This mix should be smooth.

Place the mix into the refrigerator and allow to cool for two hours. Next, take a spoonful and roll the hard mixture into balls. It will become soft very fast so roll and then place on parchment paper.

Put your balls back into the fridge for another 6 hours. After this time then roll them in cocoa. You could also roll them in walnuts or anything else that you desire.

In the end you ave a very beautiful and delicious treat. This has to be one of the easiest candies I have ever made and while they are rich in taste, they’re very delightful.

    These look good, I love pretty much anything chocolate. Were they a little bitter being rolled in the cocoa? If I were to make these I think I would roll them in walnuts

      I have yet to eat one but my husband who loves chocolate and kiddos say they’re great. You could easily dip them. Ours are in the freezer so yes they can also be frozen for later use. :)

      Shelly, they were a little because of the cocoa but you could easily dip them in anything you want.

    Wow, easy and something my youngest would love to help with AND she adores chocolate! So I wonder if they can be frozen for later use?

    I would actually take them a step further and dip them into a good grade milk chocolate. Kind of like the good brands of truffles you buy at the store. I LOooooove them, but can’t eat a lot…they are so rich! thanks for sharing Krisitin!
