How to Make Candy Cane Truffles

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pour both types of cream, sugar and extract into a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil on low heat.
  • 2Chop up the bittersweet chocolate and put into a bowl.
  • 3Pour boiling cream mixture over the chocolate and stir until smooth.
  • 4Place bowl in the fridge for 2 3/4 - 3 hours to firm up.
  • 5Using a teaspoon, scoop out firm chocolate and roll into walnut size truffle. (it gets a little messy, but completely worth it!)
  • 6Drop truffle into a bowl or container of crushed candy canes and completely cover. I usually shake the container to completely cover instead of rolling it with my fingers to avoid getting candy cane all over your fingers.
  • 7Put completed truffles into an airtight container and place in the fridge or freezer to firm up.
