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.
