Almond Truffles

Chocolate Almond Truffles: creamy chocolate almond fudge center, dipped in a vanilla candy coating. YUM.

I’ve been obsessed with truffles this holiday season.

I can’t help it. They are beautiful. Delicious. And easy to eat! Plus, there are so many flavor possibilities!

These almond truffles are one of my absolute favorites. The rich chocolate almond center, surrounded by crunchy almonds then dipped for a crunchy white chocolate coating…yes please!

  • 1/3 cup almonds, chopped

Directions:

  1. In a saucepan, melt milk chocolate with heavy cream until smooth. Remove and cool about 15 minutes.
  2. Pour into a mixing bowl and add almond extract. Beat on low until smooth (about 1-2 minutes). Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours.
  3. Scoop mixture into small 3/4 inch balls, roll in chopped almonds and freeze on parchment lined cookie sheet for about one hour.
