Make Your Own Belgian Truffles

Belgian truffles

Ah....Belgian truffles: rich chocolate taste, melt-in-your-mouth goodness, and for those who don't live in the land of chocolate, never further from you than your own kitchen.

That's right, you may not live in Belgium but you can enjoy Belgian truffles made with your own two hands.

If you can get your hands on it, we do recommend Jacques Callebaut Belgian chocolate for that authentic chocolate taste.

Whatever chocolate you have available, here's a recipe that will tempt your tastebuds.

Ingredients you'll need:
  • ¼ cup of butter
  • 8 oz. of white chocolate chopped
  • ¾ of a cup of sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. of vanilla extract
  • ½ cup of flaked coconut
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Heavy saucepan
  • Wooden spoon
  • Cookie sheet
  • Wax paper

    Here are the preparation steps:

    Step 1
    Add butter and chocolate to a heavy saucepan.

    Step 2
    Place the saucepan on very low heat.
    Melt the butter and chocolate until smooth.

    Step 3
    Remove the saucepan from the heat.
    Using a wooden spoon, mix the ingredients in the saucepan until thickened.
    Add vanilla and sugar to the mixture and mix.

    Step 4
    Refrigerate the mixture for five minutes.

    Step 5
    Place wax paper on the cookie sheet.

    Step 6
    Spread the coconut and cocoa powder into separate shallow dishes.

    Step 7
    Shape the chocolate mixture into 1-inch balls.
    Coat half of each ball in coconut and the other half in cocoa.
    Place the 1-inch balls onto the cookie sheet.

    Step 8
    Refrigerate for at least one hour.

    Step 9
    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
