Hot Chocolate Truffles, or some people call them Hot Chocolate Bombs are my favorite thing to give out to the neighbors at Christmas! Just drop one into a cup of hot milk and stir for the most perfect hot chocolate! Rich, decanted and a hint of peppermint from the candy canes! They’re fun to make and everyone needs some more hot chocolate during the holiday season. Plus, I like to stand out from all the sugar cookies they get
Yup, just plop a truffle bomb in and stir! The bigger you make your truffles the more intense the hot chocolate will be…so that’s up to you!
Where did I get this recipe? Oh you know… an ex-boyfriend’s sister. Story of my life. My family measures time in my old boyfriends. “Oh! That was 3 boyfriends ago!” Thanks family….
Just dump all the ingredients into your pot and heat until melted and smooth! As I say in the directions, you can add extracts (other than vanilla) to make them even more special. Almond Hot Chocolate, Orange Hot Chocolate… the possibilities are endless!
When it’s all good and meted, pour into a bowl or tupperware and let it chill!
I don’t know what I would do without my fabulous food scoops! I have almost every size and I use them for everything! This one is the perfect size for all the truffles I make and it makes the scooping process fly by! It’s also an awesome stocking stuffer for the bakers in your life
You don’t have to roll your truffles in crushed candy canes. I just think it’s festive and adds some fun flavor. But you can roll them in cocoa powder to give a simple look! My original post for this recipe shows what they look like in cocoa powder.
