How to Make Homemade Truffles

What you will need to make homemade truffles will depend on the recipe you decide to make, but generally you will need chocolate, silicon molds or a scooper, dipping tools, a double broiler (or a pan and a heatproof bowl to make one yourself!), and something to wrap and deliver your homemade truffles in.

Generally you will create a filling, dip it in melted chocolate, and top with a garnish. It is an easy, fun process and the more you make truffles the easier it becomes and the more professional they look!
