Hand-rolled truffles are really simple to make. This simple 4 ingredient recipe can be made sugar-free and/or probiotic! See the sections above for details, including how to flavor this basic recipe.


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


  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 30 minutes, 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. I find it easiest to chill the truffles after coating, then roll them again into a more spherical shape. It’s hard to form the truffles while they’re still soft.
  7. Store truffles in a sealed container in the fridge. Truffles will last for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. However, if you used cultured whipping cream, I recommend enjoying them within 5 days as they will continue to ferment! You can also freeze truffles for long-term storage.


  • This simple recipe is perfect for all sorts of flavors. Nutty, mint, or liquor. See the section above for more details.
  • For a traditional truffle, use icing sugar as the sweetener. However, there are a lot of sugar-free options that will work as well! See the section above for details.
