Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Truffles


These truffles are tasty. My mouth waters just thinking about them! They had a rich chocolate taste and the surprise of a whole raspberry inside. The recipe is simple and extremely easy to follow. Everyone who tried them, loved them. For someone who has never made truffles before, I was completely shocked at how easy it was. Now, the problem is knowing how easy they are to make.

The recipe calls for 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, I reduced it to one tablespoon and it was still too much. Next time I make the recipe (which will be tonight already!), I will only use one teaspoon of the unsweetened cocoa powder.
The ganache was also a bit runny when I first melted the chocolate. So, I waited a few minutes until it thickened up a bit. This also allowed for a thicker layer of chocolate around the raspberry.
My last recommendation would be to keep them in the refrigerator. The chocolate ganache gets a little gooey at room temperature.
