I love these chocolate truffles! They are my mom’s recipe, and I’ve been enjoying them for a LONG time. My mom usually makes them at Christmas, but, I believe they are the perfect treat for your sweetheart this Valentine’s day. As I mentioned above, they have only three ingredients, and take very little time to prepare. So go ahead and fix some up today!
These chocolate truffles are kept in the fridge or, if you prefer, the freezer. I keep mine in the fridge, then I don’t have to wait for them to thaw before having an indulgent little treat.;)
The truffle has its origin in France, when a famous French baker’s apprentice made a mistake in the kitchen, and ended up with ganache. The resulting delicacy was what we now know as a truffle, named after an Italian fungus called a truffle. Interesting, huh?
Packaged up in a cute little box with ribbon, or a small cellophane bag would be perfect as a gift this Valentine’s day. I love making homemade gifts for those I love, and these truffles will not disappoint! They look like they took a lot of time to make, and taste even better than they look.

How to make chocolate truffles!
- You need 2 cups of chocolate chips in a medium glass bowl. Feel free to use any type of chocolate chips you prefer. I used dark chocolate this time….maybe next time I will use peanut butter chips?
- Add 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk to your chocolate chips.
- Microwave on high for 1 minute at a time, until the chocolate is melted.
- Stir the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together, and place in the fridge to cool.
- When cooled completely (it can be lukewarm), roll one teaspoon at a time into balls.
- Roll each ball in cocoa powder and set aside.
- Keep in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer.
