Trufas de Chocolate Negro (Dark Chocolate Truffles)

Total Time:

Inactive Prep:
4 hr
20 truffles


  • 8 ounces high-quality dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream, whipped
  • 6 ounces high-quality dark chocolate, shaved or very finely chopped


In a bowl, slowly pour the melted chocolate into the whipped cream, while gently folding to incorporate the chocolate, until the mixture is one homogenous color.

Put the shaved chocolate in a shallow tray to get ready for dredging. Drop 1 tablespoon of the whipped cream-chocolate mixture into the shaved chocolate and coat in the chocolate shavings. Once it is lightly coated, gently roll between your hands to shape into a ball. Set aside and repeat until all of the truffles have been rolled.

Refrigerate the chocolate truffles for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours before serving. The truffles can also be stored and served direct from the freezer for a surprising and decadent treat.
