Chocolate Biscoff Truffles Recipe

Chocolate Biscoff Truffles

Makes 2-1/2 to 3 dozen truffles
Prep Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1- pound finely chopped bittersweet chocolate divided
  • 8- ounces heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 14-ounce jar Creamy Biscoff Spread
  • Biscoff Cookie crumbs for garnish from 1 or 2 cookies, optional

Instructions

  1. Place 8-ounces of the chocolate in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, scald the cream with the vanilla. Tiny bubbles will appear on the edges of the pan, and it should be very hot, but not boiling.
  3. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate you've placed in the mixing bowl, and let stand for 4 minutes. Then use a wooden spoon to blend the mixture. It will take a minute or so for it to come together, and when it does it will be a smooth, thick consistency. (This mixture is called Ganache.)
  4. Add the salt and use a whisk to gently mix in the Biscoff Spread. Once it's fully incorporated, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, and ideally overnight. (Once it has solidified, there might be excess oil from the Biscoff Spread that had risen to the top -- it might make it look a bit cloudy. Ignore this -- it doesn't matter!)
  5. Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper and, in a double boiler or microwave, melt the remaining 8-ounces of chocolate.
  6. Remove the firm Biscoff mixture from the refrigerator and use a 1-1/4-inch cookie scoop to shape out about 3 dozen truffles, placing them on one of the parchment-covered baking sheets as you go.
  7. Use a fork to carefully dip each truffle into the melted chocolate to coat it evenly and place them on the other parchment covered baking sheet. Use a small knife to help you remove the covered truffle from the fork. The truffles will set at room temperature. If desired, sprinkle them with Biscoff cookies crumbs while they are still wet. (Graham crackers work, too.)
  8. Once set, you can put each truffle into a paper cup!

Recipe Notes

I love to garnish truffles with a sprinkling of an ingredient that is a hint of what's to come when you take a bite!

You can get Biscoff products here, and if you happen to have a Cost Plus World Market near you, they carry some of their products, too!
