Double Chocolate Truffles

(This post was originally published December 23, 2008)

I have never made truffles before but this year, I decided to give it a whirl.  These are very good {decadent} and so much easier than I thought.  These can be made as a last minute treat for guests, friends and neighbors and the taste can be altered using different flavored extracts.

  • Melt the baking chips and shortening over low heat stirring until smooth.
  • Dip truffles into chocolate mixture.
  • Next you can either roll the truffles in the nuts or sprinkles or do as I did and immediately after dipping the truffle, return to the cookie sheet and sprinkle with the topping of your choice.
  • Refrigerate to set for 15 minutes. Store in airtight containers.

    Thanks for these ! They're just what I've been looking for! I love truffles.

    I sometimes mix graham cracker crumbs in, too, to make them a little crunchy. But I can't find my original recipe, so I'll use yours!

    Those truffles look awesome! I was just wondering what to do with the leftover carton of whipping cream... I think I see chocolate in my future. 🙂
