I am a self-confessed chocaholic. I have the craziest sweet tooth and love sharing a delicious desert with my fiance. Obviously I am not alone! My new favourite thing to make at home is food blogger Chocolate Covered Katie’s Five Minute Truffles.
Surely you all have a spare five minutes to make these bad boys…enjoy!
3 oz (packed 1/2 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini chips (For a sugar-free version, see “nutrition facts” link below.)
3 tbsp milk of choice (Canned coconut milk works too.)
optional: I added a tiny pinch of salt
optional: a few drops pure peppermint extract, if desired
If using the microwave: combine chocolate, milk, and optional salt in a microwave-safe dish, and heat 50 seconds. Stir, then heat until melted, in 10-second intervals (chocolate burns quickly), stirring after each. Now add extract if desired. Freeze at least 40 minutes, or until chocolate is hard enough to scoop out into truffle shapes with a mini cookie scoop. (Alternatively, you can freeze in candy molds.) If using the stove, heat chocolate on low until melted, stirring frequently, then proceed with the recipe as written above. I store my truffles in the freezer until just before serving. Roll in cocoa before serving, if desired.
