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. hi ann i want to make truffles for my dads birthday and i want to make the raspberry one but can i make them without glucose syrop?

    • btw the raspberry ones were on another truffles post im sorry …
      but can you still reply? 🙂
      Love your vids omg!!!!!!!!

    • Hi Nynke, If the recipe lists glucose syrup, it will be the best product to use. You can replace glucose syrup with corn syrup if you can’t get glucose syrup, but there is no other readily available alternative.

  2. Thank you for your reply. The cheesecake truffles came out amazing and were a huge hit at our party last night.

  3. Hi Ann, I am almost done making the cheesecake truffles (yum!) and I would like to know if you could clarify a couple of points in the recipe
    In the video you don’t mention mixing the vanilla into the crumb mixture, but it’s in the list of ingredients (I added it in, was I supposed to?). It also doesn’t say at what temperature to bake the crumbs (I had a bit of trouble with that). Also, in the video you mix all of the crumb ingredients together at the same time, but in the instructions you wrote to gently cream the butter and sugar and then add the egg (and vanilla?), and only then add in the dry ingredients. Should I follow the video next time? Does it make a difference?
    Next: in the video you say to mix the salt with the cheese etc. but the salt and its amount aren’t listed in the ingredients. I added a pinch, was that what you had in mind?
    Lastly, my cheese mixture didn’t get thick and creamy like softened ice cream but it’s very good! Do you have any idea why it remained runny? Could it be because I used a hand mixer and not a the whisk on a stand mixer?
    Thank you VERY much for your delicious recipes (I’ve made the mocha dream dessert too) and your help along the way.

    • Hi Nava, What a great list of questions! The vanilla is not essential in the biscuit crumb. Cook the crumb at 180C . Yes add just a a pinch of salt.It shouldn’t matter what kind of mixer you used . If your uncooked cheesecake mix was runny, you may not have mixed it enough. If you used the right ingredients and mixed it long enough it should like the mixture in the video. Thanks for your comment. I have updated the post with the info you found hard to find.

  4. hi ann .
    i just love watching your videos and you are my favourite youtuber. i just wanna say i tried making the recipie of liquor truffle without liquor. but it diddnt work out well and the ganache spread everywhere.what must have been the mistake i might have made?

    • Hi yasmine. I am thinking you could check a couple of things. Firstly did you let the chocolate shell set in the mold before adding the ganache? Secondly had the ganache cooled or was it still a bit too warm. If the ganache didn’t have the liquor in it, you would find the ganache thicker rather than more liquid.

      • thank you very much. But can i know the name of the helper

  5. Hi Ann
    I have a question, where did you buy your transfer sheet and the luster dust and the thing you used to do the pattern on the nougat traffles?
    I really don’t know were i shold look.
    And one ather thing i just was looking on the giant snikers bar and got an idea couldn’t you try to do a giant geisha?
    I LOVE what you are doing and you help me verry mutch.
    PS i’m sorry if my gramer isn’t so good
    // Elina

    • Hi Elina, I purchased the transfer sheets online – ebay/amazon will have them. As for luster dusts search ‘cake decorating stores’ in your country and they will have them.

  6. Hi Ann. Can I freeze the cookies and cream truffles and cheesecake truffles? How would I defrost them without them sweating?
    Thank you for these delicious looking recipes!

    • Hi Nava, You could try but the centre will expand and potentially split the chocolate. If you freeze chocolate, you will risk the chocolate blooming on defrost.

      • Thank you for answering my question..

  7. Hi Ann, thanks for all your videos! Exspecially the truffles, I have watched them all more than twice. One question for you: how could I make pineapple truffles or pralines? You are the best youtuber, thank you for all.

    I’m sorry if there are many grammar faults but I’ m from Germany and I have english at school just since one and a half year.

    • Hi Anonym, You could try adapting one of the following recipes for a pineapple based filling: Strawberry Truffle Recipe or Raspberry Truffle Recipe. You will find the recipes on the following page:

      • Oh thankyou very much for the fast answer! I’d try it as soon as I can.

  8. Ann, I have trouble subscribing on youtube.

  9. hi! I tried out the oreo truffles and they turned out simply amazing! Why don’t you join Masterchef Australia?

  10. Hey Ann for the cheesecake truffles, how many cups of crumbs do you need if you didn’t want to make the biscuit?

  11. Can I use fake chocolate?or not?

  12. Hi Ann, I have been enjoying your videos for quite some time now and you never disappoint. Your videos always give me a nice pass time and they’re fun to watch. The 3rd truffle video wasn’t too specific on one thing so I do have a question: what type of cream do you use? Such as whipping cream, evaporated milk, etc? I’ve tried going through other videos to figure it out but I cannot. Thank you!

    • Hi Sabrina. Use cream with 30% fat. It may be called heavy cream if you are based in the USA.

  13. Hi Ann,
    I want to make the banana truffle but I would like to know how many I can make.

  14. Thank you so much!!

    I made ginger garnish and match garnish and they came out great!

    I hate liqueur chocolates but it came out delicious!

    So much inspiration thank you again dear!

  15. for the banana do i use lemon or orange juice? or does it not matter?

  16. Hi Ann
    I would love to try your recipes, and I was wondering how long these chocolates will last good. I am planning on sending the truffles from US to Korea. It usually takes a week to get there if I do standard, but 3 business days if I do express. Please let me know what you think!

  17. Can you make something using hot fries

    • Are your destiny Lustado

  18. if I am looking for a chocolate truffle candy recipe I seen on a TV show called the Home Show in the 19 nineties I have half the recipe on a video tape and erased most of it it was made with egg whites cocoa powder a little oil sugar and it was not cooked she rolled the truffles into little balls and then into cocoa powder and set them on top of one another in the fridge. I have been trying to look for this recipe for years it was supposed to be low fat at this time. Does anybody have any idea this recipe thank you in advance maureen

  19. hy ann i just love all your recipes can u show how to make liquor truffles but in liquid state, made without using ganache. thnks in advance.

  20. Hi Ann I have just discovered your YouTube videos and wow I”m so happy, I want to make my hubby some filled heart chocolates for Valentines day. I’ve bought a silicone mould so my question is can I use any of these recipes just to fill these moulds? I’ve watched your tempering video and will be tempering the chocolate, thanks, Lindsey

    • You should be able to use the banana and liqueur filling to fill the whole mould even without a base+coating. You need to be really careful with the tempering though. And first temper you chocolate and as soon as you finish you can mix in the rest of the ingredients wich can not under any circumstance be over 32°C. Good luck and hope you and you husband enjoy those!
