2) Melt the chocolate – In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips in 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Stir constantly until smooth and all of the chips have melted. Add in 1 tablespoon of sugar per ounce of melted chocolate (for example, if you use 12 ounces of chocolate chips, add in about a tablespoon and a half).
3) Forming the truffles – Fill a baking dish or container with either cocoa powder, confectioners sugar, or even crushed Oreos. Roll about one tablespoon-size ball of chocolate in your hands and place them on top of the powdered surface you chose to roll over.
In conclusion, they are an easy homemade treat to make. They can be made with very few ingredients, and they taste great!
