There are few things more appreciated than a handmade gift. Make it something sweet and chocolate and you’ve definitely kicked the gift giving up a notch or two, or at least you have in my book!

For as long as I can remember, Chocolate Truffles have been a favorite chocolate confection that we’ve made for special occasions and holidays.

How to Make Chocolate Truffles

To make them, you begin by making my recipe for  chocolate ganache filling . You can make this up to a few days in advance and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Then, when you are ready to make your truffles, scoop out a portion of the cold ganache, about a tablespoon, form into a ball in the palms of your hands and then roll them in a variety of coatings.

For Valentine’s Day, we stick with the classic confectioner’s sugar or cocoa powder treatment for our truffles. When we make these for  Easter or special showers and such, toasted coconut is always a favorite coating.

For Christmas, we sometimes encase them in crushed candy canes or red and green sprinkles for a holiday touch. We also love to coat them in roasted pecans or pistachios to bring in a bit of that perfect salty and sweet combination.

Basically, the possibilities are endless where truffles are concerned!

Here is how we make our Chocolate Truffles.
