Easy Truffle Recipe

Chocolate Truffles
A chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache coated in cocoa powder. These bite-sized round treats are very easy to make and loved by everyone. Generally recipe calls for dark chocolate but you can use semi dark or sweet chocolate based on your taste preferences. These chocolate candies will be soon gone after served to a chocolate loving crowed. Even though the center of truffle is traditionally ganache, truffles can be made with a variety of fillings ranging from nuts to fruits.
