  • Summary

    These treats look fancy and luxurious, but they couldn'’t be easier to make. Since the truffle base is made from just two ingredients, using good-quality chocolate is key. Explore any fun toppings you like, from the traditional cocoa powder, to powdered sugar or your favorite chopped nuts or candy, to any of the more exotic flavor combinations below. Offer them to your sweetheart, serve them to guests after dinner, or pack them up for gifts—but make sure to save some for yourself!

    Ingredients

    • 2/3 cup heavy cream
    • 12 ounces good-quality finely chopped milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate, or chocolate chips
    • For the coatings (pick one or more flavors; each combo makes enough to coat the full batch of truffles):
    • 1 tablespoon curry powder
    • 1 cup unsweetened grated coconut
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
    • 3/4 cup shelled roasted salted pistachios
    • 1 1/2 cups freeze-dried strawberries
    • 1 tablespoon finely ground black pepper
