Easy Christmas Truffles To Make This Festive Season
I have a serious love affair with truffles. Besides the beautiful chocolate flavor, I adore the creamy, buttery, and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
But as sophisticated as they seem, truffles are actually one of the simplest desserts you can make.
See, unlike cakes and cookies, truffles don’t require baking. Just melt top-quality chocolate, mix it with heavy cream, and voila, your base is ready.
They’re also great for any occasion, including birthdays and anniversaries.
Have I piqued your interest? I thought so!
Let’s check out these 50+ Christmas truffles and see if we can choose a fave!

Of course, you’ll also need dairy-free cream. Coconut milk to the rescue!
Since coconut milk is different from regular cream, I suggest slowly adding it to the chocolate. Also, heat it very gently to keep it from splitting.
Have you ever tried avocados in a dessert? You’re about to!
As it turns out, there are many other ways you can use avocados besides making guacamole and toast.
And these avocado truffles are extra creamy and luscious. But, of course, the dark chocolate is still the star of the show.

Truffles are usually made with melted chocolate and cream – they’re basically extra thick ganache.
But if you don’t have cream on hand, here’s a great alternative recipe you can try.
Combine melted chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix it until it’s smooth, then chill.
I know what you’re thinking: isn’t condensed milk way too sweet?

It adds a rich nuttiness that complements the caramel apple flavor very well.
