These will be the easiest truffles you've ever made and they are sooo yummy! They are a tradition at my house for Christmas and we coat them in pink-tinted white chocolate for my daughter's birthday. You can shape them like eggs for Easter and dip them in dyed white chocolate or roll them in colored sugar. You can add different flavorings, different coatings, substitute milk, dark or white chocolate... the variations are endless. No matter how you finish these, they will taste great! The original recipe came from one of the chocolate companies several years ago but I can't remember which one.
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped in small chunks
- 1⁄2 cup heavy cream
- toasted coconut
- finely ground nuts
- colored crystal sugar
- powdered sugar
- finely ground cookie crumbs
- fancy cookie decorating candy sprinkles (you choose the finishing items)
- Place chopped chocolate in a bowl. Slowly bring cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Pour over chocolate. Let stand 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Cover and chill.
- Using a melon baller, scoop into 2 teaspoon sized balls. Smooth them out a little by hand. Serve as is or roll or dip in your choice of coatings.
- Try not to eat too many of these while you're making them or there won't be any left for the party! We have lots of fun rolling these in all different things and sampling the results as we go. The kids have a ball doing this. I usually set up 6 or 8 little bowls of things in advance. I always make a double batch that way my family can enjoy taste testing and I still have enough for the party!
Super easy and yummy desert!! I took these to a Christmas party and they made a great presentation...I rolled them in coconut, crushed oreo's, pecans and multi color sugar crystals.
I used Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips and they were so smooth and creamy. I made the chocloate a day ahead...left in refrigerator overnight then rolled the trufles an hour before the party put back in fridge to set. I will make again..Thanks for posting!!!
Wow, I never thought these would work out this great! They are very decadent and smooth with a lovely chocolate flavour (make sure to use good quality chocolate, it makes the truffles). The rolling proved a little difficult for me as I had very warm hands, but in the end it worked out nicely. But not well enough for me to attempt easter eggs, so I just made balls. lol I had so much fun rolling the truffles in all sorts of things and the finished truffles look so colourful and cute. I am very happy with this recipe and will certainly make it again! Made and reviewed for PRMR April 2010.
These are easy peasy truffles, and such fun to make. Very rich in flavor, and beautiful rolled in the red and green decorator sugar. You have a permanent fan in my DSIL who is the hugest chocoholic I have ever seen. Thank you for such a fantastic and fun recipe.
