These chocolate truffles are a chocolate lovers’ dream. They’re rich, creamy, and will melt in your mouth. This small batch Chocolate Truffles recipe is made using only 3 ingredients and will yield 4-5 chocolate truffles.
Only three ingredients are needed in this rich and creamy chocolate truffle recipe. It’s hard to believe that this decadent dessert is so easy to make.
All you need to make a small batch of chocolate truffles is 3-ounces of chocolate, a touch of cream, and an optional dusting of cocoa powder.
How To Make Chocolate Truffles
For this easy truffle recipe, I used 3 ounces of my favorite chocolate. I mostly use 85% dark chocolate because it’s my favorite. This type of chocolate is very slightly sweet. If you prefer a sweeter chocolate, I would suggest using a chocolate with a lesser percentage of cocoa and/or roll your chocolate truffles in a mixture of sugar (or Swerve sweetener), and cocoa powder.
Chop the chocolate bar into small pieces and put into a microwave safe dish. Add the heavy cream to the bowl and microwave for 30-50 seconds, depending on your microwave. Remove the bowl from the microwave and let sit for 1 minute, then gently whisk until the melted chocolate is combined with the heavy cream. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
With a 1-tablespoon cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop four to five even portions from the truffle mixture and place them on a plate. Roll the truffles into balls, then roll in plain cocoa powder or a cocoa powder/sugar combination.
