Recipe for French Chocolate Truffles for Christmas

Monique Palomares told me that chocolate truffles are a common food to eat for Christmas in France. Below is a recipe she sent for French truffles.  You may need a kitchen scale because the measurements are weighed in grams.  But if you read the containers, you can usually get an idea of the quantity you’ll need.

Recipe for French Truffles


400 g. Dark Cooking Chocolate
200 g. Softened Butter (a little under 2 sticks)
200 g. Powdered Sugar
2 Egg Yolks
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (to coat the truffles)

1. Melt chocolate over a double boiler.

2. Mix everything together, adding the butter last.

3. Put in the fridge.

4. When hardened, make chocolate into 1" balls, rolling them between your hands.

5. Then roll them in the cocoa powder.

6. Store in the fridge.

Thanks for sharing your recipe with us Monique!
