living sweetly: homemade chocolate truffles

January 11th, 2013

There are very few things I love more than a chocolate truffle.  It’s one of the few recipes that tastes better when it’s a little sloppy and homemade — there’s something so incredibly delicious about this easy, handmade recipe.

Besides, how could a recipe that just uses three ingredients not be irresistable?  I bet you have most of these in your kitchen now — what better excuse to make them for your Golden Globes viewing party on Sunday?

I’m so excited for these videos — they’re a lot of work, but I’m having a ton of fun learning how to do them!  If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!



12 ounces chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
For toppings:
Cocoa Powder
Crushed Peppermints


In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate and vanilla for 1-2 minutes.  Pour in the cream and stir for approximately 4 minutes, or until smooth.

Refrigerate for 2 hours.  Roll each truffle into a ball between your palms, and then roll them in the toppings.  Serve and enjoy!

    We made dark chocolate truffles this holiday season and I am basically obsessed with them. So easy yet so luxurious. We sprinkled ours with a little sea salt 🙂

    Ps. I’m snacking on an (unfortunately, NOT homemade) chocolate truffle at my office as I watch this 🙂
