How to Make Homemade Truffles

Since I am not a huge fan of artificial ingredients, I used India Tree naturally dyed sprinkles.  They are not quite as vibrant as the artificial ones but still came out quite nice.  I also rolled some of them in powdered sugar or cocoa powder.  I used Simply Organic peppermint extract for flavor. You can also make your own mint extract if you are ambitious.

This homemade truffle recipe takes very little time to make.  Melt the chocolate in the heavy cream, add your flavors, and chill for a couple hours.  Then just use a small scoop to plop them onto parchment paper, roll and dip.  Total time, not including chilling, was less than an hour.  These are perfect for Christmas or even Saint Patricks Day.  I like to use a combination of bittersweet and semisweet chocolate and organic heavy cream.  This is a very rich truffle recipe and I guarantee you that chocolate lovers will NOT be disappointed! If you aren’t a fan of mint, swap out the flavor of the extract and choose different colored sprinkles!
