5 from 1 reviews

Hand-rolled chocolate truffles are really simple to make. Using cultured whipping cream turns this for a melt in your mouth chocolate into a probiotic treat. See the section above for instructions on how to make white chocolate truffles, nutty truffles and liquor truffles.


  • 2 oz baking chocolate (100% chocolate)
  • 1/4 cup sweetener, to taste (see notes for options)
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream (see above for info on how to make probiotic truffles)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder as a coating (see above for alternatives)


  1. Place a metal bowl over a pot of boiling water on the stove.
  2. Melt the chocolate and sweetener together.
  3. When fully melted, remove the bowl from heat and whisk in the whipping cream.
  4. Place the bowl in the fridge for 45 min (until the chocolate starts to harden).
  5. Use a spoon to scoop out 1 tablespoon of chocolate truffle mixture.
  6. Working quickly, roll the truffle into a ball shape, then coat in cocoa powder.
  7. Store truffles in a sealed container in the fridge.


  • For traditional textured truffles use icing sugar. If you’re making probiotic truffles I recommend using a sulfite-free icing sugar.
  • You can also use other granulated sugar alternative like xylitol or stevia (affiliate links). 
  • Honey or maple syrup will change the moisture levels of the truffle and result in very soft truffles. Either add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder to thicken the truffle, or store the truffles in the freezer until your ready to serve them.
