That's it! Just three simple ingredients that you might already have on hand. If not, they're readily available so you can grab them on your next shopping trip.
Make sure you grab extras, once you see how to make chocolate truffles, you'll be whipping up more to share and gift!
How to make chocolate truffles:
In a medium-sized pan, combine semisweet chocolate chips and heavy cream over low heat, mix until you achieve a smooth consistency.
Pour mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan.
Allow to sit in refrigerator for 1 hour or until mixture is solid.
With a cookie scoop, form balls from the mixture (refreeze if truffle mixture begins to melt).
Roll in hot chocolate powder. Keep in fridge until ready to serve.
How do I give these as a gift?
During the holiday where we live the weather is cold enough that we can pack these up in some small bakery boxes with parchment inside and just remind the reciever that they should be kept in the refridgerator.
If that's not the case where you live, you can always pop these into a small cooler with some ice packs until you arrive at your destination and can deliver them to the intended recipient.
Trying to ship these easy chocolate truffles might be tricky. I'd send something a little more stable like fudge or cookies instead!
