Homemade Chocolate Truffles

Recipe by Ollin
READY IN: 20mins


  • 30
    vanilla wafer cookies (a tube of)
  • 1
    (397 ml) can condensed milk
  • 3
    tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1
    tablespoon unsalted butter or 1 tablespoon margarine, melted
  • 2 -3
    drops almond extract
  • 2 -3
  • 1
    1 teaspoon Amaretto (optional) or 1 teaspoon vanilla liqueur (optional)
  • peanuts (optional) or any kind nuts (optional)
  • chopped nuts (optional) or chocolate, snow to cover them (optional)


  • Pulverize the cookies completely.
  • Put the cookie powder in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, except the ingredients to cover them.
  • Mix well, until it becomes a chocolate mixture.
  • Refrigerate, covered for a few hours at least or like I do, make them on the evening and let them in the fridge overnight. This hardens the mixture and makes it easy to handle.
  • When ready to make, wet your hands just enough to work with the paste and make small balls until finished.
  • If you like you can put an almond or a nut inside each truffle.
  • Now you can cover them with nuts, or chocolate, or colorful thingies :), or just leave them like that.
  • You can keep them in the fridge in a covered container for several days, but they also hold well unfridge if eaten within 1 or 2 days :).
