Four Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Truffles


Sometimes, you just need a jolt of chocolate.

For me, when I need a jolt of chocolate, I can go a bit of crazy. Nothing else will do for chocolate but, chocolate itself.
When this happens, I need a deep sensation of that chocolate taste.

A simple candy bar may not do it. That is why I like truffles so much.
A chocolate truffle is a simple and easy way to get a jolt of chocolate

Four Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Truffles

Four Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Truffles

There really are about only four ingredients that are needed to make a truffle.

When I see a listing for four ingredients, I am alerted to "easy". I like easy especially, when I am in a pinch or even in a hurry.
Adding an additional ingredient or two for taste is no big deal especially if that includes something that adds to the taste.

And truffles are so easy to make...

If I am having people over or are heading on over to a dinner party, truffles are often the easiest and most impressive thing that I can offer.
Truffles make good gifts as well. I often make truffles in bulk to hand out to friends over the holidays.

EASY Sugar Free Chocolate Truffles
A delicious treat to enjoy on your own or share with others.
  • 2 Cups Chocolate Chips-
  • 3/4 cup, (I will sometimes use Greek Yogurt) Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon- can use other extract or rum for example Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 cup Chopped Nuts
Use a double boiler or smaller pot in a larger pot. In the bottom of the boiler/bottom pot bring water to a boil and then allow to simmer.While the water simmers, in the top pot add your Heavy Cream allowing it to heat and whisking for about 3-4 minutes.Once the Cream is heated through, remove it from the heat and whisk in your chocolate (not using the chocolate designated for topping) When your chocolate is melted your can whisk in your extract. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Do not cover.Line a baking sheet, that can fit in your refrigerator, with parchment paper.Remove the mixture from your refrigerator and form balls that are about a teaspoon of mix. Place the balls on the parchment lined pan. Return the pan to the refrigerator for at least an hour. Do not cover.When ready to top, prepare your chopped nuts by placing them into a bowl. I sometimes will mix in some miniature chocolate chips or chopped chocolate chunks in with the nuts. Take each individual ball, one at a time, and roll it into the bowl with the chopped nuts. Then, return the ball to the baking sheet. Return the truffles to the refrigerator for at least an hour.
