These decadent truffles may look impressive but they’re incredibly easy to make. They’re also the perfect last-minute holiday gift! Here’s all you need:

  • 8 ounces of high-quality 60% chocolate
  • ½ cup of whipping cream
  • 3 crushed candy canes


Break up the chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl. Next, heat up the cream in a saucepan and pour it over the chocolate until it melts. Finally, whisk until shiny and then pour into a shallow pan and refrigerate for a few hours.

Once chilled, roll the mixture into 12 separate balls and place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and then coat them with the crushed candy canes. You can also use cocoa powder or pistachios.

These decadent treats can be stored in the fridge for about two weeks. Just be sure to bring them to room temperature before serving. If you’re giving these treats as a gift, place each truffle in a mini decorative baking cup. Enjoy!
