Chocolate Raspberry Truffles Desserts

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Chocolate, Kids, Holiday, Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 8 oz. bittersweet chocolate (I like Ghiradelli)
  • 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 2 TBSP raspberry sauce
  • 1 bag dark chocolate candy melts
  • sanding sugar (optional)


Chop chocolate and place in a bowl. Bring the cream to a simmer on the stove and pour it over the chocolate.

Let sit 5 minutes, then whisk until smooth. Stir in the raspberry sauce.

Bring the chocolate to room temperature, about an hour or more until set.

Scoop into balls using a melon baller or a spoon and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

If needed, pop them in the fridge, then remove after 15 minutes to shape into balls.

Refrigerate the truffles again until ready to coat.

In the microwave, melt the candy melts with 1 tsp. shortening (this will help then the candy melts for dipping). Melt in 30 second intervals on 50% power, stirring after every cycle until melted.

With a fork, dip the truffles into the candy melts and place on the wax paper lined sheet. While the candy melts are still wet, sprinkle with pink sanding sugar.
