Truffle Recipes: Chocolate, Red Velvet and More

Whip up a batch of chocolate truffles with these recipes, which include a recipe for Oreo truffles, white chocolate, red velvet and more.

Melt-in-your-mouth truffles are deceptively easy to make.

Most truffle recipes involve melting chocolate with some type of dairy, like heavy cream. As the mixture cools it becomes more solid, but not hard.

Some truffles deserve a dunk in chocolate, while others are covered with nuts, sprinkles or other toppings.

These recipes will give you ideas for how to make decadent truffles with your kids. Take your pick from the basic chocolate truffle to peanut butter truffles.

For something different try the recipe for Oreo truffles, red velvet truffles or white chocolate lemon truffles.

Here’s the only tough part – deciding whether to eat the truffles in two bites or to just pop them into your mouth whole!

Chocolate Truffles

Easy chocolate truffles from Taste of Home take only minutes to prepare. Melt chocolate with sweetened condensed milk in the microwave. Then add a touch of vanilla and refrigerate for about two hours. The chilled chocolate mixture will become solid enough for you to shape into balls and then roll in sprinkles.

Peanut Butter Truffles

Bring sugar, evaporated milk and butter to a boil in a saucepan, then stir in marshmallows and peanut butter. This will be the base of your truffles. Chill until you can shape the peanut butter concoction into balls. Dipping time! Submerge these peanut butter truffles from Better Homes & Gardens into melted chocolate.

Red Velvet Cake Truffles

These red velvet cake truffles from Better Homes & Gardens have a brilliant maroon hue and a creamy texture just waiting for a big bite. Bake up a pan of red velvet cake and mix with a can of prepared cream cheese frosting. Cool and then shape before dipping into melted dark or white chocolate.

Easy Oreo Truffles

Sure to be a kid favorite – mix crushed Oreo cookies with softened cream cheese. Shape the mixture into small balls and then freeze for 10 minutes. Time for dipping! Place each ball into melted semi-sweet chocolate. That’s everything you need to create these easy Oreo truffles from Kraft.

White Chocolate Lemon Truffles

Not all truffles need to be milk or dark chocolate. Try making these white chocolate lemon truffles from What’s Megan Making. The base of the truffles is a silky combination of heavy cream, white chocolate, butter and lemon zest. Finish off these tart truffles by rolling them in granulated sugar.

White Chocolate Truffles

This white chocolate truffle recipe from Betty Crocker includes a sweet combination of chocolate and coconut. Toast the shredded coconut before adding it to the soft white chocolate. Not a coconut fan? Roll the truffles in something else like chopped nuts or even dark cocoa powder.
