Chocolate truffles are so decadent, but what most people don't know is how incredibly easy they are to make. I love to make a couple of batches of these truffles, pack them in pretty tins, and deliver them to neighbors and friends for special occasions. You can make the truffle mixture quite quickly, chill it, and come back to it when you have time to form the truffles.
TIP: The chocolate and butter can be melted in the microwave, but melting on the stovetop gives you more control and prevents burning the chocolate. Having clean, cool, dry hands is key when rolling truffles. It’s important to roll each truffle quickly so that the chocolate doesn't melt.
Special Equipment: a small (1-tablespoon) scoop with release handle
