Easy Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Aimee Shugarman | Shugary Sweets Updated

Easy Chocolate Truffles are made by melting chocolate and a few other ingredients in the microwave. You can't get any simpler!

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 truffle.

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 is marshmallow.

Here are a few tips and tricks about making these Easy Chocolate Truffles:

  • 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 ounces of 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 parchment paper. Sprinkle immediately with graham cracker crumbs. Repeat until all truffles are dipped.
  • These can be stored in the freezer for later use, or up to one week in the refrigerator (in an airtight container). ENJOY!
