Easy Chocolate Truffles – These deliciously rich and fudgy chocolate truffles have a soft and creamy centre which are coated in a hard shell. The perfect decadent treat!
Guys – these are my all-time favourite homemade chocolate truffles, and I’m so happy to be sharing the recipe with you today!
These chocolate truffles are super easy to throw together, and they are so decadent, you’ll find it hard to stop at just one. 🙂
They’re made up of three types of chocolate. Firstly, we have the soft and creamy milk chocolate centre (SO GOOD!). Secondly, we have the dark chocolate shell, and lastly the white chocolate drizzle on top.
If you love chocolate just as much as I do, these truffles were made for you!
How to make Easy Chocolate Truffles
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Milk chocolate
- Cream cheese
- Icing/powdered sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Dark chocolate
- White chocolate
To make these truffles, simply melt the milk chocolate in the microwave. Let it cool slightly.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the icing sugar and mix until smooth and combined.
Add the melted chocolate and vanilla, and mix in until fully combined. Cover the mixture and keep in the fridge or freezer for at least 2 – 3 hours until firm.
Once firm enough, roll the mixture into tablespoon-sized (0.7oz) balls, and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment or wax paper. The mixture will be very sticky as you’re rolling, but it’s completely fine. You can lightly coat your hands in cocoa powder or icing sugar to make rolling easier.
Freeze the balls for another hour until firm again.
Dip each ball into melted dark chocolate and place back onto the baking tray. Drizzle the truffles with white chocolate, and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
Change up these easy chocolate truffles to your liking. Instead of a milk chocolate centre, try a white chocolate centre with a milk chocolate shell. OR a dark chocolate centre with a white chocolate shell! ♥
How long will these chocolate truffles last? These truffles can be kept in an airtight container, layered between parchment or wax paper, in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Can I freeze these chocolate truffles? You can freeze these truffles for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
