EASY 4 Ingredient Peppermint Truffles. Amazingly creamy peppermint white chocolate ganache center coated with MORE chocolate and drizzled with extra white chocolate. Perfect Christmas dessert!
Hey y’all! Have I mentioned to you my undying love for all things peppermint before? So with the holidays approaching I feel that it is definitely time to bust out my peppermint extract. Or technically I suppose I should say that I had to BUY more peppermint extract.
Trust me, if you guys get hit with the peppermint craving these little bites will definitely hit the spot. The inside of these is creamy, dreamy, peppermint. It reminds me of the inside of a peppermint patty. The filling just melts in your mouth.
These truffles are super easy to make. They just take a little longer because they have to chill in between each step so they don’t melt. I recommend starting them the day before so the ganache can chill overnight in the fridge. Then the next day you can form the truffles and dip them in chocolate. See, super easy. No complicated procedures or temperatures of chocolate needing to be taken.
Tips & Tricks
- Size Matters. Chop the chocolate up nice and small for the ganache filling. The smaller the pieces the easier it will melt.
- Quality is important. Since this recipe is basically just chocolate, we want to use good chocolate! I used Ghiradelli white chocolate for my center ganache.
- Ratios. It’s all about the ratios. When making ganache for truffles we want to keep it at a 2:1 meaning two parts chocolate to one part cream.
- Measurements. Since we’re working with ratios correct measurements are important. I suggest using a food scale (This is the one I use. ) for the chocolate, even though the squares are measured you will notice a small difference when you weigh it after chopping it up.
