I’ll admit that it probably wasn’t until college that I learned about chocolate truffles. I clearly didn’t know what I was missing, but since then, they are a delicious treat that I enjoy often. If you’re like I was and wondering what exactly is a chocolate truffle – I could just sum it up and say, awesomeness. But, in actuality, they are traditionally a chocolate and sugar mixture make with a chocolate ganache center and then coated in either more chocolate, sugar, cocoa power, or a variety of nuts. Yes, you read that right — chocolate on chocolate on chocolate. Sounds heavenly, right? I think so too. Sometimes the centers are filled with caramel (my favorite) or other types of sweet fruits, and almost as popular as the chocolate ganache are liquor filled truffles. Every moms dream at the end of the day, no?
My next confession is that I have never tried to make truffles myself. Luckily for both you and I is that some amazing food bloggers have created these 30+ amazing truffle recipes that I’m sharing with you today. It’s on my bucket list to make them because of how simple they really do seem to make. The Strawberry Shortcake ones are at the very top of my list! I hope you enjoy this list of truffle recipes!
