10 More Chocolates Truffle Recipes

best chocolate truffles recipe how to cook that

 Chocolate truffles are a wonderful gift but to purchase handmade chocolates can be rather pricey.  Now you can make your own and have the amazing taste of hand made fresh chocolates.

For all truffles if you are using real chocolate, containing cocoa butter, you will need to temper when using it to coat. No tempering needed when using it in fillings.  Tempering makes it set firmly at room temperature. There is a video explaining tempering for you. If you are using compound chocolate, containing vegetable fat, it does not need tempering but will not taste quite as good.

  1. I love watching your YouTube videos. I am going to attempt to make some of your truffles.

  2. Hi, Ann
    I want to ask you if i can use full-fat milk instead of whipping cream (in the liquor truffles). I haven’t made chocolate before because i think i will ruin the chocolate if i change the ingredient.
    Thank you.

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Cuy, you will need to use the cream instead of milk for best results.

  3. Hi Ann! Love your videos! How long do you think the cheesecake truffle last in the fridge?

    Thanks
    Kim

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Kim, As it is baked I think they should last up to a week.

  4. Hi Ann,
    I was just looking at you cheesecake truffle recipe and it says to use half a yolk. How exactly do you get half an egg yolk? By the way, I love your videos and have been watching you since I was five but back then my mom wouldn’t let me bake but now she does and that is why I am commenting after such a long time. I love you and your videos so much and I have watched every single video on your channel. Please continue doing what you do because it brights my day.

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Neha, Usually you would seperate one egg into white and yolk. Give the seperated yolk a quick whisk and even in texture. Use half of that for this recipe or make a double lot and use the whole thing.

      • Thank you so much!!

  5. How many truffles does it make?

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Ivy, it does depend on how big you make them, but you should get 20-30 nice serves.

      • Is this really Ann or is this somebody that helps her reply? I’m not asking to be mean and I won’t be rude if this isn’t Ann, but I just wanted to know if I was really talking to Ann because if I am I would freak out!! I am such a huge fan!!

          Hi Jillian, I am not Ann, but I work with her and help her reply to all the queries. I am really privileged to be part of the How to Cook that team.

  6. Hi. For your banana truffle, you say in the video you’re using orange juice. In your ingredients it says lemon. I presume orange should be used as it’d be to strong with lemon

    Thanks

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Sean, You can use either. I personally find that the lemon works better and I don’t think it spoils the taste.

  7. Hi Ann!
    I’m planning to make truffles to box up as Christmas gifts this year. I have a friend who’s half Jewish and I wanted to make a truffle that fit with Hanukkah tradition for her. I already have Hanukkah themed transfer sheets but do you have any suggestions for how one would go about making a jelly/jam doughnut truffle or maybe a rugalache truffle?
    Thanks!

  8. Thank you for your site! I’ve made the raspberry truffle and love it. My question is how long can I keep these before they are no longer good? We are looking to make some for a shower so we’d like to make them as much in advance as possible. What’s the best way to store them.

    • Admin HowToCookThat

      Hi Debbie, The rasberry truffles should keep quite well in an airtight container kept in a cool place out of direct light. I think you could make them up to a week ahead.
