  • 2 cups (12oz/340g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (8floz/225ml) cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Cocoa powder
  • Crushed peppermint candy
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
  1. Place all ingredients in a pot and melt together on low heat. Stir to combine.

  2. Let ganache mixture cool down at room temperature for roughly 2-3 hours then chill it in the fridge until stiff enough to scoop but not too hard.

  3. Make small scoops, about 2 tablespoons each. Place on a baking tray in the freezer for one hour.

  4. Remove scoops from the freezer and roll into balls.

  5. Roll in your choice of topping: Crushed peppermint candy, cocoa powder, cinnamon, mini marshmallows (If you try the mini marshmallows, you really have to push the marshmallows into the chocolate balls).

  6. Store the truffles in a container at room temperature or in the fridge. Either is fine. They will keep fresh for 1 week at room temperature and 4 weeks in the fridge.

  7. When ready, drop chocolate balls into 1 ½ cups of hot milk and stir!
