  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate, chips or small pieces, chopped
  • 2⁄3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract (you can use other extracts for different flavors)
  • Toppings: melted dark, milk, or white chocolate for dipping, cocoa powder, coconut flakes, sprinkles, chopped nuts, etc.



Place your chocolate in a medium sized bowl and set aside.


Heat the heavy cream, butter, and vanilla extract in the microwave or in a small pan on the stove until just heated through, about 1 minute.


Pour the cream mixture over the chocolate, making sure all of the chocolate is covered, then do not stir for 1 minute. This allows the hot cream to start to melt the chocolate and give it a smooth texture.


Once the mixture has sat for 1 minute, whisk together until completely combined. Pour your ganache into a 9x9” pan (or quarter sheet pan) so that it forms a thin layer. This way it will chill quicker, and will be easier to scoop into truffles once cooled. Cover with a layer of plastic wrap touching the ganache. Place in the refrigerator to cool for at least 2 hours, or until completely set.


Using a small, 1” cookie scoop, scoop the ganache into small balls. If dipping in melted chocolate, place in the refrigerator again for 10 minutes to re-harden the chocolate. If not, roll the scooped truffles in desired toppings. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
