Easy Chocolate Truffle Recipe

I still can’t believe that it’s November and the holidays will be here so soon! Now is the time for hosting or bringing gifts for your host. If you want to make a nice little treat for family and friends, these truffles are easy to make. Thank you Chef D’Oyen Christie for the excellent recipe! Oh and don’t forget a bottle of Port to enjoy with dessert.

To make about 24 truffles, you will need: very good bittersweet chocolate, unsalted butter, heavy cream, paper candy cups, and toppings (such as candied orange or lemon zest, pistachios, and dried cranberries).

Heat the cream by bringing it to a simmer. Place the chocolate and butter in a separate bowl (preferably a metal mixing bowl). Pour the cream over the chocolate and mix until the chocolate is smooth and blended.

If the chocolate hasn’t completely melted, place the bowl over a pot of simmering water and continue to stir just until the chocolate has fully melted. Pour the chocolate into the paper candy cups and add the various toppings.

Place the chocolate truffles into the refrigerator for about two hours or until hardened. Take out and enjoy. Bon appetit!

Ingredients:
