Dear Chocolate, how to count the ways I love thee.
Whether you need a pick me up or a lift me up higher, chocolate’s got you covered. When chocolate-y goodness comes in creamy, dreamy, bite-sized truffle versions, dare I say that’s heaven in pint size form.
All you need is 4 ingredients, to make the basic truffle. There are no limits to what toppings you can use. You can roll them in Nutella, chopped nuts or even powdered sugar. I rolled mine in cocoa powder (easiest way to make them, and it cuts the intense sweet). I also attempted making them as Dark Chocolate Sea Salt truffles: adding the truffles to melted dark chocolate & with a sprinkle of sea salt.
They look impressive, AND don’t need much effort. I made a whole batch of these over the holidays, to gift to my coworkers & friends. I meant to make 36, I accidentally made 90. Because that’s what happens when you go “hey, I’ll just add just a little a bit more chocolate to this”.
Extra truffles eating & 10 pounds later, I can tell you, I regret nothing.
And neither will you. These truffles are super rich, decadent, & melt to velvety smoothness once you eat them. Oh, and after you make them, your house will smell like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory.
If you make this recipe, I’d love to see how it turned out and variations you used! Share your creations with #findmymojyo to be featured on our Instagram stories.
