Raspberry Mocha Chocolate Truffles are decadent bite-sized treats!
A rich chocolatey filling coated in sprinkles.
These dark chocolate raspberry truffles are absolutely sinful. They’re so delicious you’ll want an entire batch to yourself. Packed with such a rich and fudgy chocolate center, given a hint of mocha and a swirl of raspberry, there’s nothing you won’t like about these sweet treats. Make a batch and serve them out during holidays like Valentine’s day or keep them to yourself throughout the year. Since these chocolate candies are so easy to make you can whip up a batch whenever you want.
What is a truffle chocolate?
A truffle when referring to chocolate is not referring to the mushroom counterpart. Instead what we mean by “truffle chocolate” is a rich and creamy confectionary treat made with a base of chocolate and heavy cream. You can use any variety of chocolate including dark chocolate, semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or white. The mixture is then cooled, and shaped before being coated in something else, usually cocoa powder, nuts, or in our case, sprinkles. While truffles are a very basic candy, they are also incredible and addictingly good!
- Semi-sweet chocolate pieces
- Heavy whipping cream
- Raspberry jam
- Coffee extract
- Vanilla extract
- Cocoa powder

How to Make Raspberry Mocha Chocolate Truffles
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and then set it aside.
- In a medium-sized saucepan cook your chipotle and heavy cream over low heat until the chocolate has melted.
- Remove the pot from the heat and then stir in the raspberry jam, vanilla extract, and coffee extract.
- Beat the mixture with a hand mixer on low speed until the chocolate is smooth.
- Chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
- Shape the cold chocolate into 1 inch sized balls and roll the balls into sprinkles.
- Store your truffles in a single layer in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to eat.
- Let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
You can coat your truffles in practically anything. I like to do sprinkles because they look fun and colorful and can easily be made to fit in with a theme. For an easier coating choice, you can simply roll your truffle balls in some unsweetened cocoa baking powder.
How long do homemade truffles last?
These homemade chocolate truffles will last about 3 or 4 days if kept stored in an airtight container at room temperature. they will also last up to 2 weeks if stored in an airtight container in the fridge. For either one, I’d recommend keeping them stored in a single layer if possible, to help prevent sticking. If you need to stack the truffles, place them in a neatly arranged row and then place a piece of wax paper over the top before arranging the next layer, and so on. The wax paper will help to prevent the truffles from sticking to the row below it.
