Brownie Mix Truffles Recipe

Brownie mix truffles are a quick and easy way to satisfy your chocolate cravings. They require minimal ingredients and are perfect for beginner bakers or when you’re short on time.

Ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix (any flavor you like)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 16 ounces chocolate chip morsels (semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate depending on your preference)
  • Parchment paper
  • Sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

1. Bake the Brownies: Prepare and bake the brownies according to the instructions on the brownie mix box. Let the brownies cool completely before proceeding.

2. Crumble the Brownies: Once cool, transfer the brownies to a large bowl or food processor. Using a fork or the pulse function on the food processor, crumble the brownies into fine crumbs. There shouldn’t be any large chunks remaining.

3. Combine with Cream Cheese: Add the softened cream cheese to the crumbled brownies. Using a spoon or spatula, mix the cream cheese and brownie crumbs together until well combined. The mixture should be smooth and easy to handle.

4. Shape the Truffles: Scoop the brownie mixture out using a tablespoon or a small cookie scoop. Roll the mixture in your hands to form balls. You can make the truffles any size you like, but bite-sized portions are ideal. Place the rolled truffles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

5. Freeze the Truffles (Optional): This step isn’t mandatory, but it helps the truffles firm up and makes them easier to dip in chocolate later. Place the baking sheet with the truffles in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or until firm.

6. Melt the Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chip morsels in 30-second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until melted and smooth. Alternatively, you can use a double boiler for melting the chocolate.

7. Dip the Truffles: Take out the baking sheet with truffles from the freezer (if you froze them). Using two forks, dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, coating it completely. Gently tap the fork on the rim of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

8. Decorate and Set: Transfer the chocolate-coated truffle back to the parchment paper lined baking sheet. While the chocolate is still wet, you can decorate the truffles with sprinkles or any other toppings of your choice.

9. Refrigerate or Freeze: Place the baking sheet with truffles in the refrigerator and let them chill for at least 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened. You can also store them in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Tips

  • For a richer chocolate flavor, use a mix of semi-sweet and dark chocolate chips for dipping.
  • If the brownie mixture seems too dry, add a tablespoon of milk or melted butter to moisten it.
  • Get creative with your toppings! You can use chopped nuts, coconut flakes, or even drizzle with white chocolate.
  • These truffles are best enjoyed at room temperature. Let them sit out for a few minutes before serving.
