Chocolate? Check. Easy and delicious? Check. The checklist has been fulfilled.
These are my two step truffles and they are literally the easiest sweet treat ever. Unless you’re buying refrigerated cookie dough. Easier, but not as yummy. I promise.
I have to be honest, I cannot remember where I got this recipe. It was before the internet existed. Well, maybe not that long, but I still had dial up. I do remember that clearly. I probably made these while I was waiting for the internet to connect – and still had time left over. I digress.
Since Easter is just around the bend, I thought this would be so perfect. No one likes getting cheap chocolate. 5 year olds do. Others do not. But honestly, they really are so easy you can just whip them up whenever and pig out while binging on your favorite TV show. I don’t do that. My wife does.
TWO STEP TRUFFLES
8 ounces quality semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons cocoa powder to dust
2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar to dust
candy molds, optional
Place chocolate in a large bowl. In a saucepan bring the cream to a boil. When it comes to a boil, remove and pour over the chopped chocolate.
Let it stand for 1 minute, then stir until smooth.
Cover and chill. Once chilled, using a melon baller, scoop mixture into 30 2-teaspoon sized dollops. Roll into balls or whatever size you want and coat with cocoa powder, confectioner’s sugar, shredded coconut, chopped praline pecans. Whatever floats your boat. If you’re using the candy molds, which are soo so easy, just pour, chill and pop out. Coat with goodness if that’s your plan.
That’s it guys. I told you. Easy. I always make these around Christmas and there’s no need to keep them cold. If you’re gonna make them when the weather is warmer, keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to put them out.When that chocolate craving strikes, reach for one of these bad boys! Easy, two steps!Click To Tweet

Two-step truffles sound perfect for my frequent chocolate cravings! Yum! Thanks for linking up with our Merry Monday party this week!
I LOVE chocolate! I have saved this as it’s such a simple recipe even I can do it! 😀
Thank you so much for sharing!
Ha! Something tells me you can do waaay more than this simple recipe!
I haven’t tested this, but I’m thinking this could, while it’s first made, be poured over brownies, or dip cake balls in it, or maybe drizzled over a cheesecake. You’ll see when you try it. The possibilities are endless.
These look so yummy and so easy! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
This is so easy to make specially because of two ingredients. Love it and will be trying it soon.
Let me know how it turns out for you! Thanks for checking it out!

This looks like a fail-proof truffle recipe. You can never go wrong with chocolate!
Very true. As long as you use good chocolate, you’re golden!
