Amaretto Truffles

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


What do you get when you combine Amaretto and bittersweet chocolate? Why Amaretto Truffles, of course.

Prep Time: 3 hours

Total Time: 3 hours


  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon Amaretto
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate
  • Unsweetened cocoa


Place chocolate in stainless steel bowl. Combine the cream and butter in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Pour over chocolate. Add Amaretto and stir until smooth. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours or until set.

Shape the chilled mixture into 1-inch balls, rolling with the palms of your hands, and set aside on waxed paper. Chill for 1 hour. Melt milk chocolate. Dip the chocolate balls into milk chocolate and, immediately, roll each in cocoa. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until chocolate hardens. Store in an airtight container. Use waxed paper, if necessary, to separate layers.

Makes 12 truffles.

amaretto, Member lizziepizzoni

I've made a lot of truffles in my time and these are delicious And delightful. I myself would put sweeter chocolate in because The overall taste is a bit too rich for a truffle. They get too sickly after about three.
