Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles


Experience love at first bite with Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles that are ridiculously easy to make at home! Rich, flavorful, and decadent, they are perfect for treating your friends, family, and yourself. I always make a couple batches of these chocolate truffles during the holidays for gifting. Because who doesn’t love chocolate? 

Begin by heating the heavy cream on the stove. Next, pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and stir together until completely smooth. Then add some raspberry preserves and chill until the chocolate mixture is hard enough to roll into balls. Then just roll into balls, freeze until firm, roll the balls in the cocoa powder, and savor the taste of chocolate goodness. 

To make the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffles


Heat heavy cream


In a saucepan over medium-high heat, heat 4 ounces heavy cream until almost boiling.


Melt chocolate


Meanwhile, place 8 ounces chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Once the cream is hot and starting to bubble, immediately pour it over the chocolate and let sit for 5 minutes undisturbed, then stir together. If the mixture is not completely smooth with all the chocolate melted, microwave in 15-second increments and stir until smooth.


Add raspberry preserves and chill


Stir in 2 tablespoons of raspberry preserves. Chill uncovered for about 2 hours or until the ganache is hard enough to roll into balls.


Shape truffles


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a melon baller or a tablespoon to scoop out portions of chocolate ganache. Using your hands, roll into small balls. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet and freeze for 15 minutes.


Dust with cocoa


Place ½ cup dark cocoa powder in a bowl. Roll each truffle in cocoa powder to coat.



Store the truffles refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to serve.
