These 2-Ingredient Truffles Are Too Easy To Mess Up
Truffles are often revered as a luxury, a beacon of decadence. And you probably think that making them involves a ton of time and effort. We’re here to debunk this perspective by offering you the best recipes for easy-as-hell truffles. All you need for these babies are two ingredients — yep, two — and you’re on your way to chocolatey paradise.
1. Chocolate Ganache Truffles
- 12 ounces dark chocolate, divided
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
Heat heavy cream and eight ounces dark chocolate on medium heat in a saucepan, stirring constantly. Take mixture off the heat when fully incorporated and chill for at least four hours. Heat the rest of the chocolate (four ounces) in a microwave in 30-second intervals until melted, stirring frequently. Scoop chilled ganache mixture into one-inch balls and roll in the melted chocolate. Chill and enjoy!
2. Oreo Truffles
- 36 Oreos, crushed
- One 8-ounce package of chilled cream cheese
Mix crushed Oreos and cream cheese until fully incorporated, saving a quarter of the Oreos for decoration. Roll mixture into one-inch balls and roll in crushed Oreos. Chill and enjoy!
3. Brazilian Truffles (Brigadeiros)
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut, plus more for decoration
Mix condensed milk with coconut in a nonstick saucepot over medium heat until mixture thickens and pulls away from the sides. Chill mixture for at least an hour, then form into one-inch balls and roll into more coconut. Chill and enjoy!
4. Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles
- Pre-made refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough, left at room temperature
- 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, melted
Mix cookie dough with melted chocolate, saving some chocolate for decoration. Chill, then roll into one-inch balls and roll in more melted chocolate. Chill and enjoy!
