  • Yield: 30 truffles 1x


Bite-sized pieces of rich ganache rolled in chopped pistachios and walnuts. A simple recipe for instant happiness and a delicious way to satisfy the after-dinner sweet tooth.


  • 10.5 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped into small pieces
  • 6.5 ounces of heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons of butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3 cups of chopped nuts of your choice (I used peanuts and pistachios)


  1. Place the chopped chocolate in a medium-size heat-proof bowl, then set aside
  2. In a small pot, heat up the heavy whipping cream and the pieces of chopped butter over medium heat and then bring to a boil
  3. Pour the butter-cream mixture over the chocolate and then allow it to stand for a couple of minutes before stirring well until smooth (if the chocolate doesn’t melt completely, heat it in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir until smooth)
  4. Cover the bowl of chocolate mixture (ganache) with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator overnight (if not overnight, at least five hours)
  5. When chocolate mixture has finished chilling, place chopped nuts in a flat bowl, and remove truffle mixture from the refrigerator
  6. Using a small melon ball peeler or a teaspoon, form round, bite-sized balls of chocolate ganache
  7. Immediately roll the ganache balls in the chopped nuts and place on a parchment-paper lined plate
  8. Repeat until all ganache and nuts have been used up
  9. Cover the plate with plastic wrap and place chocolate truffles in the refrigerator until firm (at least a few hours)
  10. Bring truffles to room temperature before serving
