For the longest time I thought I wasn’t much of a chocolate lover, and I’m fairly certain that I’ve proclaimed my fondness for fruity, sour, chewy candy-awesomeness more times than I can count.
However, within the last couple of years I’ve strayed a little bit from the sweets of my youth and tiptoed my way to the dark side. And now, I am completely smitten.
When the lovely people at NESTLÉ® asked if I would be interested in collaborating with them to create a delectable recipe using NESTLÉ® Toll House Dark Chocolate Morsels, I couldn’t resist. Plus, the idea of a fun “Dark Chocolate Pinspirations Contest” is something this Pinterest fanatic can easily get behind!
When deciding what to create for this collaboration, I knew keeping it simple would allow the rich, intense flavor of NESTLÉ®’s dark chocolate shine through. What better way to make that happen than decadent Dark Chocolate Toffee Truffles? Come on, who doesn’t love a marriage between rich dark chocolate and rich buttery toffee? I can’t be the only one that secretly consumes those little toffee bits by the handful when making recipes that include them… right?
Smooth and sinful, these Dark Chocolate Toffee Truffles are a treat worthy of your deepest chocolate needs. And thanks to NESTLÉ® Toll House Dark Chocolate Morsels, they’re easy peasy to make. Trust me, you’re going to want to make these babies, stat.
Dark Chocolate Toffee Truffles
10 ounce package Nestle® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup toffee bits (see note below)
1. Place chocolate morsels into a medium bowl. In a small saucepan, bring heavy cream to a boil. Remove hot cream from heat and pour it over chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute, then stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla extract and chopped toffee bits. Cover and chill until firm, about 2 hours.
2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a small cookie scoop, shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Roll truffles between your palms to create a smooth appearance. If desired, roll truffles in cocoa powder or additional toffee bits. Chill until ready to serve.
- Truffles can be made up to one day in advance; store truffles in an airtight container within the refrigerator.
- Toffee bits can be found in the baking aisle of the grocery store. However, you can also simply chop up your favorite chocolate covered toffee candy bar.
