Shortcut to light and easy chocolate truffles

Updated on April 7, 2014

I just love chocolate, I can actually eat chocolate all day without getting sick, for a while at least, but at some point either my pancreas or the liver would sadly decide to fail me.

Yes chocolate truffles are small heaven bites that you just can't get enough, the problem arises when you realize the full box in front of you is now empty. I know that happens to a lot of people so, now the question arrises: "How can I enjoy them without so much guilt?" . For this I offer you the next shortcut, it is extremely easy to make, I remember making it with my mother when I was a child, and the taste doesn't disappoint.

Enjoy the recipe and don't forget to vote and comment.

  1. Start by crushing the biscuits in a bowl, either between your fingers or grate them until you have a smooth biscuit dust, the smoother the dust, the better the truffle texture. My family loves the truffles with bigger biscuit grains.
  2. Add the powdered sugar and the cocoa and mix well with a spoon (if you don't have powdered sugar, add the sugar in a cup and mix it with the milk and make a syrup).
  3. Add over the mixture, soft butter or melted butter (Tip: if you heat in the microwave the butter for 10 seconds you will get the right butter consistency), mix well, yes the biscuit dust will start clumping together, don't panic that is what we want.
  4. Put away the mixing spoon, add the milk and mix the truffle dough with your hands, keep mixing until you can roll together the dough in small balls.
  5. Let the mixture ret in to the fridge for about 15 minutes giving the butter time to harden, then take it out and start rolling the mixture in small balls.

Finishing touches

You can choose to roll the balls in biscuit dust, cocoa or coconut flakes to make them appealing.Eat them as they are or use them to decorate cakes.

Tip: you can make the recipe vegan by replacing the milk and butter with water or syrup, adjust the quantity of liquid by dripping small amounts and testing the consistency of the dough between your fingers.

Make your truffles taste better by adding vanilla extract or grated orange peel.


Bon appetite !
