Easy Mint Chocolate Truffles Recipe
Mint Chocolate Truffles Should Burst in Your Mouth
Mint truffles are delicious and burst in your mouth with a delicate, and yet strong mint, dark chocolate flavor. They are relatively easy to prepare! You can serve them either straight from the refrigerator, at room temperature, or as a special indulgence after dinner. You can place your deliciously sweet treat on a paper doily on the table after dinner for a delicious treat and presentation.
Make sure they are straight from the refrigerator, though, so they have time to melt in your guest’s mouth the minute they bite into it. Mint truffles go well with a hot cup of coffee or cappuccino and chocolate milk.
You can serve your mint truffles as a party delicacy and with a strong drink too, such as, Anisette. Your guests will love it and feel special for eating this special French treat.
Roll your mint truffles in cocoa powder for an awesome finishing touch. Not many people know how to roll them right, where they melt in your mouth; nevertheless, when you allow the butter and the cream to mix well, then add the dark chocolate morsels, the mint truffles come out just right.
