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. And when chocolate-y goodness comes in creamy, dreamy, bite-sized truffle versions, ooohhh there’s no escaping choco-Mojo heaven.
Simply put, chocolate truffles are flippin’ divine – all you need is 4 ingredients, and 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 sprinkling of sea salt. To quote Uncle Jesse, Have mercy!
They look ridiculously impressive, AND don’t need much effort. I made a whole batch of these puppies over the holidays to gift to my coworkers & friends… I meant to make 36, I…. umm, accidentally made 90. Because that’s what happens when you go “hey, I’ll just add a bit more chocolate to this… a lil chocolate never hurt nobody”.
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.
Friends & taste buds being impressed + house smelling like choco-heaven + easy to make = a whole lot of Hallelujah!
