  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. (1 teaspoon vanilla)
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    chocolate truffle melted close up
  • Pour truffle mixture into a bowl or shallow dish. * Refrigerate until set: 10-20 minutes.

  • Scoop out a spoon full of the truffle mixture and roll into a ball. This part can get really messy because the chocolate likes to melts. I like to scoop out the truffles but only slightly form them into balls, place them onto a parchment lined baking sheet then stick them into the refrigerator to reharden. *

  • Once they’ve set up again roll the chocolate into perfect round truffles. Then roll each truffle in any sprinkles you want! You can also dust with cocoa powder or powdered sugar.

Tips and Tricks
  • *If you pour the truffle mixture into a large shallow dish is will cool faster but it really isn’t a big deal.
  • * The trick to getting perfect round truffles is to roll them when they are cold- which means keep the mixture cold.
  • I also like to wash or wipe my hands off between every 2 or 3 truffles that I roll- it seems to help with rolling.
