Easy Chocolate Truffles


Easy Chocolate Truffles

Okay these truffles are unbelievable! I've never made truffles before in my life, nor did I think I would be able to make them, much less make them so effortlessly.

Well let me tell, you I was wrong! Thanks to Wendy at The Weekend Gourmet, I am a truffle-making fool. This recipe is so versatile. Wendy says she makes them all through the year with different variations. I first saw them when she made them with peppermint for Merry Mondays. I took her recipe and instead of peppermint, I added Reese's Peanut Butter Chips and Heath Bar Crunch to the already chocolatey filling. The result was pure rich and creamy Heaven.

I'm fairly certain you could hardly go wrong modifying it to suit your own taste.  Check out Wendy's recipe HERE and let me know what you think!

  8. You did a beautiful job with these. Yum, I love truffles but to add heath or reese's is an extra touch.

  10. I saw these too and was gushing over them! I haven't tried them yet, but I think I'm going to use the Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe Joe's for them (like oreos wiht peppermint!). Just stunning!

  11. I have one friend who always makes candy for christmas, but she never wants to do truffles. These look so cute that maybe I can convince her otherwise...
