If you need an extremely easy and quick dessert recipe, this is definitely for you. These truffles are so easy to throw together and seems to always come out looking gorgeous no matter how messy you were making them. I would recommend serving these as a sort of quick treat at a summer barbecue or pool party for your guests to snack on after the meal. Also a really good side dish or topping to a cake or larger dessert.
After making the Oreo truffles (posted a month or so ago), I had a lot more leftover melted chocolate than I thought I would, so I just quickly threw it in some chocolate molds. While my chocolates are obviously very simple, I wish that I had some cute candies or sprinkles to top them with. I love simple desserts like this because you could go crazy, filling it with caramel, sprinkles or pretty much anything sweet and they will always come out tasting amazing. ENJOY!!
-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.
