Dark Chocolate Truffles
Truffles are one of those decadent and irresistible desserts that are very hard to resist. These dark chocolate truffles are rich, creamy, chocolatey and very indulgent! Personally, I love a chocolatey dessert and these are perfect to keep around in the fridge, freezer or to even make them as a gift for someone. These truffles are super easy to make and are perfect for any occasion.
Praline or Truffle?
I often hear these referred to as pralines or truffles, and I began to wonder what is the difference?
Turns out, the main ingredient for pralines are nuts.
Truffles on the other hand are mostly made using cream and chocolate. You can add a spin to truffles, but the main ingredients should always be the chocolate and the cream. From there you can go crazy, be creative, add flavours and toppings.
Dark chocolate truffles should be smooth, creamy, rich and decadent.
Making your own dark chocolate truffles is super easy! Make these for a special occasion, during the festive season, holiday, or on those cozy nights when you want something sweet.
All you need to do is:
- Pour hot, boiling heavy cream over finely chopped dark chocolate.
- Leave this to sit for five minutes.
- Give it a stir until creamy and smooth.
- Place in the fridge & wait.
- Form into balls and cover in your favourite toppings.
Cocoa Powder is a classic! (my favourite)
Finely chopped nuts add extra taste and texture.
Sprinkles can add more colour.
Desiccated coconut is also delicious.
Dehydrated berries! You can use dry strawberries or raspberries. They add great flavour.
It is always nice to make yourself a decadent treat! These dark chocolate truffles are delicious. I usually prepare them for special or festive occasions. If you are looking for other chocolatey and decadent recipes you can check out the Chunky Chocolate Cookie Recipe I made here before.
