Chocolate, whipped cream, and graham crackers. Can anything made with these three ingredients not be delicious? And these truffles are so easy, they are ridiculous. Make some little balls of chocolate happiness today!
How to make Easy Truffles:
2 12-ounce packages semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
1 8-ounce container whipped cream
Melt the chocolate chips over low heat in a pan. Let cool, then add the whipped cream. Doesn’t that sweet cloud of whipped cream look amazing?
I think you need to look at it up close. Or is that just me?
Stir the whipped cream and chocolate together. You might need to taste it right about now if you’re not strong like me.
I have no idea what happened to this spoon. CATS! Can’t turn my head for a minute!!
Now scoop out spoonfuls of the chocolate-whipped cream mixture and place them on sheets of waxed paper. Don’t worry if they aren’t perfect balls. You’ll get a chance to shape them some more later.
Put the sheets in the freezer for about two hours. Using several squares of graham crackers, crush them into fine crumbs. I like to put the crackers in a plastic bag and use a hammer. I like to hammer stuff. I have a pretty hammer with little pink flowers. I know you men out there want one of these pretty flower hammers now, don’t you? (Don’t lie!)
As you pick up each ball, shape it a bit to make it more circular and roll in the crumbs! Store in the refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container. (I like them stored in the freezer. Kinda like little ice cream snacks.)
To vary the flavors and textures, add two teaspoons of orange, raspberry, or coffee liquer (Kahlua!) to the chocolate-whipped cream mixture. Try white or dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet or milk chocolate. Use finely chopped nuts, coconut, cookie crumbs (Oreos!), or candy sprinkles for the coating!
You could totally put a dozen of these in a pretty box, tie it with a bow, and call it a present! (I mean, like, if you could actually give them away.) And can you believe it’s that easy?
*Recipe makes approximately 3 dozen truffles (depending on the size you make the balls!).
