Raspberry Chocolate Truffles. So easy, and perfect for Holiday gift giving!

You cannot give a gift of chocolate that’s not going to be appreciated. That’s basically a universal law.

When that chocolate happens to be soft, rich, indulgent truffles that you made yourself, you’re in for a whole other level of gift gratitude.

Fresh or frozen raspberries can be used in this recipe.

Frozen Raspberries make this recipe more economical without sacrificing flavour.

I’ve made all kinds of truffles over the years, flavored with liqueurs, orange zest, rum and any number of other spirits. At Christmas, I always gravitate back to making this version with natural raspberry flavour, a perfect pairing with the richness of chocolate.

I usually use small paper candy cups to present them in Christmas tins or holiday themed printed boxes. Don’t give them all way though. You’ll definitely want to make extras to have on hand for yourself.

Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

I like to use 50% dark chocolate chips for this recipe. It’s so much easier to measure in particular.

Raspberry Chocolate Truffles

Raspberry Chocolate Truffles. Incredibly easy, soft, creamy, luscious chocolate truffle treats, made with just a few simple ingredients. Perfect for gift giving at the Holidays!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • ¼ cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 20 ounces good quality chocolate, chopped (at least 50% cocoa)
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • cocoa for dusting

Instructions

  1. Puree the raspberries and icing sugar together in a food processor or blender. Press the raspberry puree through a fine sieve to remove the seeds. Set the de-seeded puree aside for later.
  2. Heat the whipping cream to almost boiling, either in a small saucepan or in the microwave.
  3. Chop the chocolate and add it to a double boiler over slowly simmering water. Add the cream and corn syrup, stirring until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  4. As soon as it is smooth, take it off the heat. You don’t want to overheat the chocolate.
  5. Stir in the raspberry puree and transfer the truffle mixture to a glass bowl.
  6. Let it cool to almost room temperature before covering it with plastic wrap and cooling completely in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours or until it is firm.
  7. Working quickly, form the truffle mixture into 1 inch balls. I use the smallest of my cookie dough scoops for this purpose, which is an ideal tool for the job. A melon baller can also serve this purpose.
  8. Roll the formed truffles in cocoa and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  9. Chill for an hour before transferring the truffles to airtight containers.
  10. These are best stored in the fridge and taken out 20-30 minutes before serving.

Love your recipes! Wondering if you think mandarin oranges could be used instead of raspberries in the raspberry truffles? My Father in law likes orange and would like to make some for him. Thank you for your advice, Sheri
