Homemade Chocolate Truffles Recipe
It was one of those always sunny-because-we-live-in-LA mornings where we were chit chatting in our office, trying to shed off a bit of our holiday spirit and get into work mode. Looking at the stack of manuscripts she had yet to edit, my bff Laura pulled out a white candy box and asked me if I wanted a truffle.
A truffle? Why would I want to eat a pungent, Italian mushroom all by itself? Where’s the pasta???
“No silly. They’re chocolates,” she giggled. “David (her ex) makes them every year for Christmas. You need to try one.”
Of course I did. And that, my friends, is where my choco-holic cravings were cured and my chocolate truffle obsession began.
Because Laura had a very defined palate and ate only the best dark chocolate from a little boutique chocolate store down the street from our office EVERY AFTERNOON (!), I immediately had the impression that truffles were far too elegant and complicated for a novice like me to make.
I mean, David had been making them FOR YEARS. There must be some secret technique to master.
This chocolate truffle recipe is probably the easiest no-bake dessert you’ll make all holiday long, and with its pure peppermint flavor, it’s sure to brighten it too.
