Chocolate raspberry truffles are an incredible homemade treat that is virtually effortless to make. With a rich, slightly bittersweet chocolate flavor swirled with a delicious hint of raspberry, these chocolate raspberry truffles are delicious and oh-so-satisfying. These bite-sized desserts are perfect for those moments when you want to whip up an easy-to-make dessert or are looking for a simple yet elegant and colorful homemade gift to give friends and family.
Heat the whipping cream gently. You don't want to overheat it.
Use an ice cream scooper if you have one to help form even truffles.
– Add other flourishes to your truffles like nuts, sprinkles, cocoa powder, or coconut to make them extra eye-catching (and delicious!).
– To make vegan chocolate raspberry truffles, swap vegan chocolate and coconut cream for chocolate and whipping cream.
– For the ultimate chocolate treats, dip the raspberry chocolate truffles in melted chocolate.
Place your chocolate raspberry truffles in an airtight container to keep them fresh for up to 2 weeks. Or stow them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
In a small pot, heat the whipping cream over a medium flame. Once it begins to boil, remove it from heat. Pour in chocolate, stirring until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in raspberry jam.
Transfer the raspberry chocolate ganache into a bowl and chill for at least 2 hours.
Using a spoon, scoop out the ganache and form small balls.
Pour the cocoa powder out onto a plate, and roll the truffles in the cocoa powder to coat.
Serve and enjoy!
Use dark chocolate that has at least 60 percent cacao.
