After making Oreo truffles, I ended up with leftover chocolate, so I quickly threw the melted chocolate into molds that I already had. My chocolates are very simple, and I wish that I had some cute candies, dried fruits, or nuts to top them with. I love simple desserts like this because you could go crazy, filling it with caramel, dried coconut, sprinkles or pretty much anything sweet or salty and they will always turn out amazing. If you need an easy and quick treat, this recipe is definitely for you. These truffles are so easy to throw together and always look gorgeous no matter how messy you were in making them. I recommend serving these as small treat at a summer tea party or barbecue for your guests to enjoy after the meal. They are also a great accompaniment to any cake or larger dessert.
-Multiple Kinds of any chocolate (Milk, Dark, White, Semi-Sweet etc.)
-A variety of toppings (Sprinkles, candies)
- If desired, sprinkle the toppings onto the bottom of each mold.
- Melt each type of chocolate separately by microwaving and stirring the chocolate in thirty second increments for a total of about 90-120 seconds. Do not over melt the chocolate, as it will burn and harden.
- Fill each mold with the chocolate slowly with a squeeze bottle, spoon, or by pouring the chocolate from a measuring cup. You can mix multiple kinds of chocolate in a single mold, BE CREATIVE.
- Using your palette knife or spatula, scrape off any excess chocolate into a clean bowl; it can be gently warmed and reused.
- When the back of the mold is smooth and even, gently tap the tray of chocolates on the countertop to pop any air bubbles.
- If you’re making lollipops, insert the sticks, twisting gently so that they’re completely coated with chocolate.
- To make the chocolate harden quickly, put it in the freezer for a few minutes.
- Once the chocolate is firm enough to come out of the mold, invert the entire mold onto a clean towel and twist very gently to release the chocolates.
