Candy Bar Truffles Recipe

Candy Bar Truffles Recipe
Christmas sweets vary and range from cookies to candies to cakes and pies. One of the easiest treats to make is truffles, and homemade truffles are truly decadent as well as elegant. Of course, they come in dozens of flavors, so you can make just one kind or many. Since there are always lots of fun-size candy bars left over from Halloween at my house, I decided to grind up those candy bars and add them to my favorite truffle recipe.
You’ll want to use your favorite little bars for these truffles. My first batch included Snickers, Three Musketeers, and Mars Bars. I have also made them with peanut butter cups, Mounds and Almond Joy bars, and heath bars. You can use a mixture of your favorites, or just one kind such as peppermint patties. You’ll be surprised how easy these are and they can be made ahead.

48 1-inch Truffles

24 fun-size candy bars

3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, (try to avoid chocolate flavored or Nestles brand)
1 cup heavy whipping cream

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting

  1. Open the candy bars and place them in the food processor; pulse until they are finely ground. Depending on the flavors of the candy bars, they may clump together in the food processor. This is okay.
  2. Place the chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave-safe glass measure (8 cup measuring cup is preferable).
  3. Microwave 3 minutes; remove from the microwave and add the ground candy bars.
  4. Let the mixture sit 5 minutes; whisk until smooth.
  5. Refrigerate until thick.
  6. Using a cookie scoop (or spoon if one isn't available), scoop balls and use your hands to make them round.
  7. Roll in cocoa and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
