Dark Chocolate Almond Truffles

These truffles are so easy to make and yet sophisticated, it feels like cheating.  They’re just so easy to make – and to me, chocolate almond has always been the most elegant flavour – is that just me?

I created this for the Duncan Hines Spring Bake competition – but it was too good to keep to myself….

Dark Chocolate Almond Truffles (adapted from Cookies and Cups)


2 cups of buttercream icing (I’m pro-homemade frosting.)

1 packet Duncan Hines chocolate almond powder (or a teaspoon of almond

12 ounces dark chocolate

1/2 cup ground almonds

DSC_0919Melt the dark chocolate.  Mix chocolate almond powder (or almond extract) into buttercream frosting.

DSC_0920Mix in melted chocolate.  Stick in the fridge and allow them to cool for about an hour.  Taking about a tablespoon or two of dough at a time, roll ball of chocolate in ground almonds.


Little but delicious – perfect for a little dark chocolate hit when needed!
