You know those days when you just need chocolate? The days where you settle for semi-sweet chocolate chips because there is NO chocolate in the house. Well these my friends are the perfect treat to stash in your freezer…for those days! Ahem… your chocolate stash.

BROWNIE TRUFFLES! Wowza! These are good! I should of put a key on my stash because they were gone a little too soon. ;) These really are so simple to make. Bring them to your next party and people will be begging for the recipe. You can tell them it’s a secret recipe… I don’t mind.

Brownie truffles

Dangerously delicious brownie truffles


  • 1 pan brownies make according to directions
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips melted


  1. Bake brownies according to directions on package. Do NOT over bake. Allow to cool.
  2. Once cooled, scoop out brownies into a large bowl. If the edges are hard leave those out. Add in cream cheese and stir until combined.
  3. Line parchment paper onto a cookie sheet. Then roll your brownie mixture into balls and place on the sheet. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes or until firm.
  4. Melt chocolate in medium sized bowl in the microwave. Then place your truffle ball on a fork and dip into the chocolate. Spoon chocolate on top. Once the ball is covered tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place ball carefully on the parchment paper. You can leave as is or top with sprinkles or crushed candy.
  5. Place pan in freezer until the chocolate hardens. These are best kept in the freezer. Remove about 5 minutes before serving.

    glad I am not the only one diving into the chocolate chips when I am having a chocolate craving. I have been also known to make hot chocolate in the summer if I am really desperate.

    Wowza! I’m a big fan of Oreo cream cheese truffles, but I’ve never tried them made with brownies instead. I bet they would be the best. Dangerous, even. I’m powerless to resist even frozen cookie dough, much less truffles. . . I’ll definitely have to give them a try. :)

    oh I know those days… (don’t you need chocolate everyday though ??? I do ! I am a complete chocoholic)
    I will definitely have to give this recipe a go
    Thanks for sharing !

    I’ve had issues with freezing the oreo truffles because they sweat under the candy shell – do you not have this problem with the brownie ones? or are they not sitting out after being frozen, just eaten as fast as they come out haha

      I kept mine in the freezer so they would last longer and stay hard, but once I took them out they were fine. It was about an hour. There weren’t left out long though because they were eaten. LOL! I think it really depends on the chocolate too. Hope that helps. They’re super yummy!

    I tried this recipe and it is great! I added some melted peanut butter to the chocolate for the coating. This, for me, turned out to be better than just the chocolate. Thank you for this recipe. I will definitely use this in the future.

    Wow, these sound amazing. I just made truffles yesterday but really wish I would have found this recipe first. Definitely bookmarking this for next time!!!

    This looks delicious. Just one question – what is ‘pan brownies’? Is it a ready-made mix for making brownies? Or do you have a separate recipe for pan brownies? (I’m in the UK, so sorry if it’s a US thing and this questions seems dumb!)

      Hi Kelsie! It has been a while since I’ve made these, so I’m not positive how many it makes. I think it’s around 2 dozen! :)
