Why this Recipe is Best

These came by accident because I am a lazy slob.

Okay, that’s not really true…the lazy slob part. But, they were not a “planned thing.

You see, I was making this delicious S’mores Dip last month, and after I took all my yummy photos, I placed the dip in the fridge for later. You know, later…the normal time families eat dessert (not 10 am).

In the afternoon, I had a serious craving for the dip, and of course it firmed up. But, it struck me, this would make a delicious filling to a chocolate truffle!

How to Make Chocolate Truffles

So I grabbed my metal cookie scoop and I got 48 truffles from this recipe (OMG!!).

I froze these for about an hour. Then dunked them in MORE chocolate and sprinkled some graham cracker crumbs on top.

These were such a hit. And while they have all the “making of a s’mores” the marshmallow just added a rich smoothness to the filling that you can’t really tell it was marshmallow.

Chocolate Truffles Recipe

In a glass bowl, you’ll want to microwave the sweetened condensed milk with the chocolate, stirring every 30 seconds (for about 1 minute total).

Add in the marshmallows and microwave again in 30 second increments. Mine took about a minute for the marshmallows to get soft.

You could either stir and blend them in completely, or blend them until they are incorporated, but there are still streaks of marshmallow (this was my goal, but I failed).

Refrigerate this mixture for about 2 hours. Using a metal cookie scoop (mine was a small, 1 Tbsp sized scoop), portion out your filling onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Freeze for an hour. Use your fingertips to roll into a smooth ball.

Melt 16 oz chocolate wafer (I love Ghirardelli) until smooth, according to package directions.

Using a toothpick, dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, tapping the side of the bowl gently to let the excess drip off. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Sprinkle immediately with graham cracker crumbs. Repeat until all truffles are dipped.

PRO TIP: for a fun variation, you can roll the truffles in cocoa powder or nuts instead of dipping in chocolate.

How do you store chocolate truffles

These can be stored in the freezer for later use, or up to one week in the refrigerator (in an airtight container).

Comments & Reviews

  1. I am so disappointed. I followed your instructions exactly but mine turned out an absolute mess! I only used the Ghirardelli chocolate (was quit expensive). When trying to place a toothpick in-the toothpick broke! I had to pick up the messy items with my fingers! I even put them back in the freezer for more time to try and get them off the parchment paper. Nothing worked. I scrapped them off with my hands and hand rolled them. The inside consistency was gooey. What in the world could have happened?

    1. Honestly, I’m not sure what to tell you. We make these often and don’t have that issue 🙁 I’m sorry this happened to you. There is a video, did you watch that to see if maybe it helped?

  2. Hello there! Planning to make these as gifts. Can they be left out at room temp for a few hours before my recipients refrigerate them or is that not safe? 

  3. I could easily pop a few of these in my mouth! Truffles are so good & great for parties, gifts, or taking anywhere/anytime!

  4. Chocolate truffles are the best! I love making a batch of these and hiding them from my kids to enjoy when they’re in bed.:)

    1. I’m not sure what you mean. The chocolate wafers are melted and the truffles are dunked into them as the coating.

  5. Yum! If this is the kind of recipe you create when you are lazy, you should be lazy more often!

  6. OMG yum! Just looking at the filling in that pic makes me want to make them right now! If it wasn’t 9pm, i’m in my pajamas, and I don’t have any ingredients (or actual food) in my kitchen lol. On my to do list for tomorrow! Great recipe 🙂 … and 10am is totally acceptable for dessert time btw 😀 😀

  7. Aimee, These really look great! I am going to make them as soon as I get more chocolate wafers for the coating. Thanks
