I’m a huge fan of chocolate and rich desserts. Don’t get me wrong – I like a good pie or cookie, but my weak spot has always been decadent chocolatey treats. Lava cake, fudge, and of course, truffles. I love that truffles are small and portable – the perfect little pick-me-up. What’s even better is that most truffle recipes are pretty straight forward and easy to do yourself. You don’t even have to bake them! So, as an ode to truffles, I’ve gathered my top 5 favorite easy truffle recipes.

3 Ingredient Coconut Truffles

When you’re looking for a tasty dessert with minimal fuss, or even when you’re craving a Mounds bar but don’t have any on hand, these easy coconut truffles really hit the spot. The center is sweet, rich, and full of coconut. The chocolate shell is the perfect foil to the sweet center. And, they couldn’t be easier to make. With just 3 ingredients they are by far one of the easiest desserts out there. To make these truffles you only need shredded coconut, condensed milk, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

3 Ingredient Chocolate Creme Truffles

Our chocolate truffles taste just as good as they look, and you only need a few simple ingredients: chocolate, oreos, and cream cheese! Truffles are great served up at a party or wrapped in cellophane and sent off as party favors. It’s pretty much impossible to go wrong with this one…and pretty much impossible to eat just one!

Sea Salt Chocolate Truffles

If you’re not already on board, we’re here to convert you to the sea-salt-and-chocolate craze. With five ingredients (that you probably already have in your pantry) and a microwave, you can easily whip up these fancy truffles. While they might seem basic, due to the relatively simple ingredients involved, the flavor is unparalleled. Trust us, you need to try these immediately! Get the recipe here!

Crispy Chocolate Truffles

This is a recipe of few ingredients, so the quality of what you use will absolutely determine the final quality of the dessert. To really increase the flavor of these truffles, we added just a little amaretto, but feel free to test out your own flavors including mint or cinnamon. For the coating we used lightly crushed Rice Krispies, but other coatings like shredded coconut, chopped nuts, or cocoa powder are absolutely delicious. Get the recipe here!

Peppermint Truffles

Once the holidays roll around, it’s inevitable that we’re going to try to get as much peppermint as physically possible into our bellies. Whether it’s in our hot, morning beverage or in our afternoon snack, there’s no bad time for this minty goodness. Not only are we bringing you the perfect seasonal dessert here, this also happens to be a ridiculously easy recipe that always, always delivers; these candy cane truffles are adorable and are just what you need to get into the spirit of things…make ‘em and see for yourself!
