Triple Chocolate Brownie Truffles Recipe

These decadent truffles are a dream for any chocolate lover, featuring a triple chocolate punch from the brownie base, chocolate chips, and rich chocolate coating.

Ingredients

Brownie batter

  • 1 box (14.5 oz) brownie mix (your favorite brand)
  • Ingredients called for on the brownie mix box (usually oil, water, and eggs)
  • ½ cup Enjoy Life Mini Chips (or similar dairy-free mini chocolate chips)

Chocolate Coating

  • 9 oz bag Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels (or similar dairy-free dark chocolate)

Optional Embellishments

  • Candy hearts
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

1. Bake the Brownies: Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the brownie mix box. Prepare the brownie batter as directed, then pour it into a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake the brownies for the recommended time until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Let the brownies cool completely on a wire rack before proceeding.

2. Make the Brownie Truffle Mixture: Once the brownies are cool, crumble them into a large bowl using a fork or your hands. Aim for a mixture that combines fine crumbs with some larger chunks for textural variety. Add the mini chocolate chips to the crumbled brownies and stir gently until just combined.

3. Shape the Truffles: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop the brownie mixture using a tablespoon or a 1-inch cookie scoop. Roll the mixture into balls using your hands. For easier shaping, you can slightly dampen your palms with water to prevent the mixture from sticking. Place the rolled truffles onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each truffle.

4. Freeze the Truffles (Optional): While not strictly necessary, freezing the truffles for 30-60 minutes helps them firm up and makes them easier to coat in chocolate.

5. Melt the Chocolate: Place the dark chocolate morsels in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate, as it can burn.

6. Coat the Truffles: Using two forks, dunk each truffle into the melted chocolate, coating it completely. Gently tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

7. Decorate and Set (Optional): While the chocolate is still wet, you can decorate your truffles with candy hearts or sprinkles. Carefully transfer the coated truffles back to the parchment-lined baking sheet.

8. Refrigerate or Freeze: Place the baking sheet with the coated truffles in the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened. You can also freeze the truffles in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

Tips

  • For a richer chocolate flavor, you can use a brownie mix made with dark chocolate.
  • If you don’t have dairy-free chocolate chips or chocolate morsels, you can use regular semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate for coating.
  • Allow the melted chocolate to cool slightly before coating the truffles, as hot chocolate can melt the brownie mixture.
  • You can use a variety of sprinkles or chopped nuts for decoration.
  • Let the truffles soften slightly at room temperature for a few minutes before serving for the best texture.
