Save money and wow your people with these easy homemade White Mint Truffles.
There is nothing quite so indulgent as a chocolate truffle. Just say it.Chocolate truffle.
I bet you couldn't help but say it with the slightest French accent, huh? Yeah, it happens to the best of us.
Chocolate truffles aren't just for the French, though, ya know? You can make them at home with four totally easy ingredients and in less than an hour.
Here's how to stir up a batch of our exclusive White Mint Truffles
that feature a smooth, white chocolate center, creamy dark chocolate shell, and little bits of peppermint candy cane.
All you gotta do is heat a bit of heavy cream in a bowl, then stir in some white chocolate chips.
You can also use a white chocolate candy bar, which I think makes even more gorgeous truffle centers, but sometimes they are hard to find. So don't beat yourself up. White chips will do if you can't find 8 ounces of a white chocolate candy bar.
Toss in some crushed candy canes. Finger licking encouraged.
Melt a bit of high-quality dark chocolate, then drizzle a bit of it into the bottom of a small candy wrapper.
Once your white truffle mixture is finished, just pop it into the fridge until it hardens, then scoop it into tiny little balls. You don't want them too big, or else there won't be room for the chocolate shell on top.
Yep, that chocolate shell. You want to save room for it now, don't you? Clever you.
Sprinkle with crushed candy canes for that extra oomph of peppermint flavor.
Then cool, serve, and share. Or don't share. Just practice that French accent. "Chocolate. Truffles."
You're gonna need it!
