Chocolate Truffles 4 Ways


Take the fuss out of homemade truffles with a few easy coating ideas that provide instant flavor and embellishment!


  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
  • 1 (4 ounce) bar semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 (4 ounce) bar bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 (0.81 ounce) package freeze-dried strawberries
  • 10 starlight hard peppermint candies
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup powdered peanut butter (such as PB2®)


  1. Heat cream in a small saucepan over medium until steaming, about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine semisweet and bittersweet chocolate with butter in a medium bowl. Pour hot cream over chocolate and let stand for 1 minute. Stir until melted and smooth. Stir in vanilla and salt. Pour into a shallow dish, such as a pie plate, cover, and refrigerate until ganache is scoopable, about 30 minutes.
  3. Place strawberries in a mini food processor and pulse until finely chopped but not powdered, about eight 1-second pulses. Place in a small bowl.
  4. Place mints in a zip-top bag and whack with a mallet about 5 times until coarsely crushed. Transfer to a separate small bowl. Place cocoa powder and powdered peanut butter in small bowls.
  5. Scoop tablespoonfuls of ganache and roll into balls; your hands will warm up the ganache if it got too firm. Place on a parchment-lined plate.
  6. Roll 3 truffles in each coating, pressing to adhere. Chill until ready to serve.
