Chocolate Truffles

When I have the time, I would make baked goods and sweets for my 5 yo’ son teacher, for Thanksgiving or Christmas or other occasions.

I made some chocolate truffles this time for Thanksgiving, so they are dominantly decorated in Fall colors, of orange and yellow 😀

I will also enter this recipe to a contest on instructables.com 😀 Especially when I topped them with candy corn, they totally scream for Halloween contest 😀

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 150 g dark chocolate
  • Cocoa powder
  • Mini Reese’s
  • Candy corn
  • Yellow sugar sanding (You can of course, get more festive Halloween sprinkles such as bones, orange sugar sanding, mini bats, etc (Wilton’s products for Halloween are out already, at Walmart))
  • Heat milk and butter in microwave for 40 seconds, stir until butter melted
  • Leave it out to cool slightly then add in chocolate, stir until melted
  • Leave to room temperature, stirring occasionally, until thickened (or you can also leave it in the fridge to speed up process)
  • Take a tablespoon of firm/thickened ganache, shape into a ball and roll in cocoa powder (or sugar or Reese’s for the next balls)
  • Place into mini cupcake liner and your truffles are ready 🙂
  • Serve chilled (from the fridge)!

BTW! For the candy corn truffle, I press one on top of the ball and coat sides and bottom with cocoa powder 🙂
