My easy Chocolate Truffles

Not only in the festive season like Christmas or Easter these delicious homemade chocolate truffles are the right treat to serve. They suit every occasion. This recipe for chocolate truffle is being made with condensed milk, which gives it a rich flavour without being too heavy.

During the festive season everybody is craving something lighter and when it comes to me, I couldn’t possibly eat another creamy, heavy dessert. Of course, we will feel different in a couple of days. What is better than little treats in this time? So let’s make these chocolate truffle balls to have with a coffee after the meal or in the afternoon.

No cook chocolate truffles

These truffles are not baked, they are only kneaded and then chilled. Thanks to the high proportion of butter, they have a good consistency and shelf life.

What chocolate is best?

You can coat these truffles with any kind of chocolate. All you have to do is melt it. Try white chocolate truffles, milk chocolate or dark chocolate, like in this recipe.

For something a bit more fancy, try chocolate with pink pepper or chilli or sprinkle some coconut crumbs over the chocolate coating of the balls while they are still wet. in this recipe I rolled them in cacao powder before chilling to give them a classic look.

They are not as rich as the authentic cream and chocolate truffles but are made with crushed biscuits instead.
