Basic Chocolate Truffles Recipe @pinch

A rich, decadent, and basic chocolate truffle recipe that's easy to make and perfect for a dark chocolate lover. The truffles are creamy and just melt in your mouth. We love how this can be tailored to your taste by using a different liquor. We opted for raspberry and loved the pairing with the chocolate. Bailey's, Kahlua, Grand Marnier, or even rum would be delicious too. Get creative when decorating the truffles. You can use nuts, cocoa powder, colored sugar, sprinkles, coconut, chocolate drizzle, etc. For a pretty presentation, place the truffles in mini cupcake liners after they are decorated. A box of these is a perfect gift for a loved one. Better than store havebought! This is a basic dark chocolate truffle recipe and can be flavored with whatever liquor or flavoring you want. You can dip them in any desired color and then drizzle or dredged them in nuts.

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Candies Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1 cup(s) heavy cream
  • 10 ounce(s) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoon(s) unsatled butter
  • 3 tablespoon(s) alcohol of choice
  • cocoa powder, for rolling
Intructions :
  • Add the cream to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat
  • Place the chocolate and the butter into a bowl
  • Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let set 2 minutes
  • After 2 minutes, whisk and then add the alcohol
  • Allow the mixture to firm up
  • After the ganache has set, pipe out the truffles onto a parchment-lined baking sheet in equal amounts (you can also use a small ice cream type scoop, but these make much larger truffles). Let set until firm, about 30-45 minutes
  • Using rubber gloves and cocoa powder, roll the firm ganache into balls. They don't have to be perfectly round, as they will be rolled again. Use the cocoa powder to keep the ganache from sticking to your gloves
  • Chill, then roll again
  • Let the truffles come to room temperature before dipping or decorating.
