Basic Truffles are easy to make and have a unique flavor that is everyone’s favorite. What’s even better, they won’t require you to sweat over ingredients that are nowhere to be found around the house. You’ll be able to cook them in just under 2 hours.

Truffles are incredibly tasty and will rival those you find only in super pricey boutique stores. Just make sure you get the right chocolate before you set out on your truffle making adventure, for the quality of chocolate and its cacao content has an important bearing on the quality of the truffles. Make them well in advance and store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Give these delicious truffles a spin, just coat them with chopped nuts, cocoa powder or some chocolate as well! These tasty treats make ideal gifts during festival season.

How to Make Basic Truffles

  • Add chocolate and cream to a saucepan and turn on medium heat.
  • Cook while continuously stirring. Allow the chocolate to melt and the mix to smoothen.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the flavoring. Add it to a small dish and refrigerate to allow it to set. Take care that the truffle does not become too hard. 1½ to 2 hours of refrigeration is sufficient
  • Roll into balls or fill candies.


  • Truffle has been named after the tuber fungus truffle which is edible.
  • Truffle was invented when hot cream was accidentally placed in a bowl which also had chocolate.
