Incredibly Easy Christmas Truffles

Who doesn’t like a sweet treat every now and again.

I whipped up these sumptuous chocolate truffles to take to a Christmas party and they were a big hit. They are ever so simple to make, taste divine and look amazing.

I made two flavors, chocolate mint and chocolate orange.


Chocolate Mint Truffles

12 oz dark chocolate (chips work fine)
1/3 cup of heavy cream
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
6 peppermint candy canes

Chocolate Orange Truffles

12oz milk chocolate (chips work fine)
1/3 cup of heavy cream
1tsp orange essence
chocolate sprinkles


Combine the cream and chocolate in a sauce pan over a low heat and stir until the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth mixture. Add the flavoring. Pour mixture into a shallow dish and pop in the fridge for about an hour.

Scoop about 1/2tsp size dollops of the mixture and roll into spheres. Then roll into the coating of your choice. For the mint ones I blasted the candy canes in a food processor to make a minty sort of dust.
