8 simple melt-in-your-mouth truffle recipes perfect for the holidays

November 23rd, 2020

Truffle desserts are bite-size chocolate treats that are commonly circular in shape. You can be as creative as possible in creating your own truffle and there is no cookbook that says you can’t do this or that.

You can make them in your own way or the traditional ways that we have today and, with regard to the ingredients, you can have as many as you want- though the most common components of truffles are chocolate and cream.

According to The Spruce Eats,

“Truffles can be formed and finished in many different ways; they can be molded into fancy shapes, airbrushed, covered with luster dust, or sprinkled with a vast assortment of sprinkles, nuts, chocolate shavings, coconut, and more. Traditionally, truffles are formed into small balls by hand and rolled in cocoa powder, giving them a rustic, misshapen look reminiscent of the fungus known as truffles—which is how they got their name!”
