How to make chocolate ladoo (or chocolate truffles)?

Updated on September 5, 2016
3.4 stars from 5 ratings of Chocolate Ladoo (Truffles)

I love ladoo. Ladoo are made from gram flour (or basen ata). I thought why not try making ladoo out of chocolate. I tried and to some extend I successes making good chocolate ladoos.

Hope you will love making and enjoying this simple to make chocolate truffles.

Remember to check out my other Chocolate recipes.

  • 175 grams plain chocolate
  • 2 tbsp orange-flavoured liqueur, or Amaretto
  • 40 grams unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar
  • 50 grams almonds, grounded
  • 50 grams chocolate, grated


  1. Melt chocolate with orange-flavoured liqueur (or Amaretto liqueur) in a bowl kept over saucepan of hot water. Stir constantly until well combined.
  2. Still stirring, add unsalted butter. Keep stirring till the butter has melted.
  3. Add in the icing sugar and the ground almonds. Stir ensuring all get mixed well.
  4. Allow the mixture to cool. When the mixture is firm, roll it into small balls.
  5. Roll these chocolate ladoo or truffles in separately kept grated chocolate tray. Once truffles are coated enough, place them in cake paper cases. Chill them before serving.


Innovate by using white chocolate to make White Chocolate Ladoos instead of brown. You can also use both, serving White and Brown chocolate truffles (ladoos).

      Yes I think kids would love that. I have added kesar to sugar syrup for flavor. But next time I ll try to add some naatrul color to boondis ( as I do not use artificial colors) to make them more tempting. Thanks for the idea Chaachaji.

      Yes TEACHES12345, some chocolate recipes are damn easy to make, but we thought otherwise and avoid trying out these recipes. When I started exploring chocolate recipes, my wife advised that it will be difficult to make.

      Now, we make and try out lot of chocolate recipes.
