Chocolate truffles are the perfect accompaniment for special occasions. Now that Christmas is approaching, this is your opportunity to surprise family and friends with these delicious homemade truffles.
I´m happy whenever I have the chance to make a chocolate dessert, like these truffles.
When I was a kid I loved chocolate, but milk chocolate.
Back then, I found the taste of dark chocolate too bitter. So I admit, I always had a mixed feeling about truffles, those wonderful chocolatey tear-shaped sweets … so appetizing, so apparently suitable for my palate and … bam! Suddenly that bitter taste was all over my senses. I can’t believe that those beautiful chocolate things are bitter! , I used to grumble. They were the forbidden pleasure.
Yes, it’s a dessert for chocolate lovers. Real chocoholics. And I knew I had to be one. I couldn’t let Mr. Wonka down.
When you’re little, you want to be older so you can drive, go out with your friends, and do the things that grown-ups do. Well, this was one of those things. When I grow up I’m going to like chocolate truffles. I knew we were meant to understand each other.
Years later I matured, and my palate along with me. We were both growing in parallel, educating ourselves as I tasted more flavours.
Today I can’t live without these little ones.

Recipe for Chocolate Truffles with Condensed Milk
- 200 grams dark chocolate for melting
- 125 grams condensed milk
- 20 grams cocoa powder
- Chop the dark chocolate bar, put it in a bowl and melt it in the microwave at 700W for 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate and put it back in for another 30 seconds. Repeat this action until the dark chocolate is completely melted. Tip: do not overdo it because the chocolate burns easily (and makes a tremendous smoke). For a bar it will be about 2 minutes, but it is always better to do it little by little.
- Add the condensed milk to the chocolate and stir until well blended.
- Let the mixture cool in the refrigerator for ½ hour.
- With the dough form small balls (20gr approx) with your hands and place them on the baking paper. Tip: preferably do not press too much when making the balls so that they are not hard later.
- Coat the truffles in cocoa powder and keep them in the fridge for ½ hour to cool. Et voilà! You have made delicious chocolate truffles!
