Easy Truffle Recipes
and A Dark Chocolate Truffle Recipe

Easy truffle recipes will make the perfect dessert for a romantic evening and making a dark chocolate truffle recipe can be a healthier choice for the sugar conscious.

Easy truffle recipes only require a few ingredients such as your choice of a delicious fat, good quality chocolate, and a flavor choice such as vanilla.

You can then roll your easy truffle recipes in all sorts of extra goodness such as your favorite nuts, shredded coconut, or a high quality cocoa powder.

Dark Chocolate Truffle Recipe


  • 1/3 cup of Heavy Cream
  • 6 tbsp. of Butter
  • 2 cups of Dark Chocolate Chips (60% or more)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of High Quality Vanilla Extract


  • Ground Nuts
  • Cocoa Powder or Cacao Powder
  • Finely Shredded Unsweetened Coconut Flakes


Heat cream to a bare simmer using a double boiler.  Then add in butter - melt.

Add in the chocolate chips and stir until melted.  Take off heat and add in vanilla.

Bring to room temperature and then refrigerate for 2 hours before rolling into balls.

Finally roll each truffle with your favorite coating.

I like the idea of using cream and butter along with a darker chocolate chip to make a decadent dark chocolate truffle recipe.
