I could not let Valentine’s Day go by without a chocolate recipe. When I think of Valentine’s Day the first thing I think of is chocolate. Doesn’t everyone?
I have had these chocolate brownie truffles rolling around in my head for some time now. And since Valentine’s Day is Wednesday I have waited to post until the perfect time.
There really isn’t too much that goes into making these truffles. First of all, you will want to make your favorite brownies. I used this recipe that I posted a short time ago.
Next comes to breaking up the brownies into crumbs, and then mixing in cream cheese that is at room temperature, then for a little more chocolate add some mini chocolate chips, and then lastly dipping the truffles into melted chocolate.
When it comes down to recipes this is a quite simple one, and believe me, these truffles will be a hit with everyone. You may want to hide a few for yourself because before you know it they will be all gone.
