Halloween Chocolate Truffles Recipe

This chocolate truffle recipe is the perfect treat for your Halloween Party!

Halloween is of our favorite food crafting holiday! I love to create fun and delicious Halloween treats for my friends and family. We have tons of Easy Halloween Treats that will complete all of your Halloween Party needs, as well as Easy Halloween Decorations (one of our favorites are our Halloween Tomato Cage Ghosts)!

If you think that truffles sound hard to make, you couldn’t be more mistaken! They are very easy to make and only take 3 ingredients. What I also love about them is that they can be easily adapted for any holiday just by changing the sprinkles.

You can use Christmas sprinkles for a holiday treat, Valentine’s sprinkles for a Valentine’s day dessert or just fun sprinkles for a birthday party or any of your everyday dessert needs.

We love Chocolate Truffles and no bake desserts so much! Some of our other favorites are our Peanut Butter Balls and our Oatmeal Monster Cookie Energy Balls (these are a great after school snack too!)

Chocolate Truffles for Halloween

What is a truffle

Typically a truffle is a type of ganache, which is a mixture of bittersweet chocolate and heavy cream. They are rolled into balls to look like their namesake, the truffle mushroom. They have almost a fudge-like texture.

Ingredients

  • semi-sweet chocolate chips – Typically you will want to use a good quality chocolate, either semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (around 60% cocoa) – chocolate chips work well.
  • unsalted sweet cream butter (softened)
  • heavy whipping cream
  • Halloween colored sprinkles

How to make homemade chocolate truffles

Making chocolate truffles is actually much easier than you would think.

  1. Boil the heavy cream and pour the hot cream over chocolate. Pour cream over butter and chocolate
  2. Mix and chill.Mix ingredients together
  3. Roll into balls and cover in sprinkles, dip in chocolate, roll in chopped nuts or dust with cocoa powder (you can do this by rolling in the cocoa powder).
    PRO-TIP: I find using a cookie scoop is much better than using a kitchen spoon to scoop the filling and roll into balls. It creates the perfect size truffle!scoop truffles into balls

How to store truffles

Truffles can be kept in the refrigerator for about a week and frozen for 1-2 months (defrost in the fridge overnight).
