I was planning on making chocolate truffles to go along with the many cakes and pies I am doing for Christmas. Does anyone have any favorites they could share. I usually do raspberry chocolate truffles and peanut butter but am looking for something new. TIA

Italian Cream Cake with cream cheese icing or red velvet are always good. icon_smile.gif

Chocolate chip cookie dough truffles. Yum, yum, yum!

Use a cookie dough recipe that has no eggs (you can find several through Google--I've used two different ones and they both tasted fine to me), add mini chocolate chips. Dip in melted (tempered) chocolate.

These are my family's favorite treat of any kind--higher than cookies, higher than cupcakes, higher than cake.

If you're talking cake truffles, I used cherry cake with cherry buttercream and covered with chocolae and loved it. It you're tlaking candy truffles, I just made some using the Andes Peppermint Crunch chips and covered with white chocolate and then made some with Creme de Menthe chips and covered in regular chocolate. They both came out yummy. The creme de menthe part actually hardened up so it's got a little cruch to it. I didn't make any this year, but I also like orange truffles covered in dark chocolate. That could be either candy truffles or cake truffles. Hmmm...now I think I want to make some of those. Maybe if I have time.

These all sound awesome! I was thinking more along the lines of a candy truffle but I am always up for new cake truffle ideas as well!

I just bought some eggnog. A friend of mine told me about white chocolate eggnog truffles, so I'm going to try my hand at them after the holidays (I froze the eggnog so I'd have it for afterwards). I don't have a recipe yet, but I'm sure it's not more than subbing eggnog for some, or all, of the cream in the ganache.

I have a new love: lemon pepper and white chocolate truffles. Delicious!

Ingredients (makes about 1 1/2 lbs.)

1 cup heavy cream
14 oz. White Chocolate
8 oz. Additional White Chocolate
3 tbsp. Butter (optional)


Batter (Ganache):

1. Break chocolate into small pieces and put in a large bowl.
2. Bring cream slowly to a light boil.
3. Pour boiling cream over chocolate, stirring until all the chocolate has melted.
4. If you want to add butter, do so now, before the batter cools, and thickens.
5. Add Lemon Pepper, to taste

Make sure the ganache is thick enough to form the truffle balls

Forming Truffles:

1. Using two spoons round balls. Place them on parchment.
2. Melt the rest of the chocolate in a double-boiler or microwave.
3. Dip each ball in the melted chocolate

Someone on CC was talking a few weeks ago about eggnog truffles and gave this link. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds delicious.
