This chocolate truffle recipe is great basic confectionery, and can be varied in a number of ways. Truffles are so easy to make, and are great for experimentation.
There are classic recipes like Viennese truffles or rum truffles, but how about chili and cinnamon flavored truffles, or even ginger and apple flavored truffles?
Start with the basic chocolate truffle recipe to get a hang of the technique, and then work your way from there.
You can also experiment with coating. In the recipe below I suggest cocoa powder, but why not try finely chopped nuts and melted dark chocolate?
What about oreos cookie crumbs covered chocolate truffle? Can you come up with an even more original chocolate truffle recipe?
Common flavors to work with are:
And of course, chocolate!
But why just stick to the common options? Mix and match and let us know which variety is your favorite!
When serving the recipe below to children we substitute the liquor for rum or brandy essence, and use sweetened cocoa powder for coating.
A nice variation is using white chocolate, which works nicely with the cocoa coating.
If the cocoa powder has trouble sticking, leave the truffles in the refrigerator after coating.
As this website grows I image chocolate truffles to become a major part of what we have to offer. It is wholly possible to dedicate an entire website to truffles alone, and personally I love coming up with new variations and spins on the basic fare.
