Easy Raspberry Truffles

These truffles are seriously easy to make. If I can do it with a 2.5 year old running around and a 10 month old crawling around, you know these are easy!

(From the Charlotte Cooks booklet I got from a class I took at CPCC)


1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 Tbsp unsalted butter

2 Tbsp heavy cream

2 Tbsp seedless raspberry jam

1 Tbsp rum (optional)

1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened), for coating

Optional – powdered sugar

Makes 20 truffles


Combine all of the ingredients (except cocoa powder) in top of a double broiler over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth. Chill at least 3 hours or until firm enough to handle.

Form into one inch balls, using a scoop or a teaspoon. I used a cookie scoop. Roll in cocoa powder until coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

(I added some powdered sugar to the cocoa powder because I found the unsweetened cocoa very bitter)
