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.


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.

      Haha love it that I’m not the only one! We can join the chocoholics club together. ;)

    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. :)

    • Jamielyn posted on September 13, 2012 at 8:57 pm (#

      I love frozen cookie dough too! I’ve been wanting to try the cookie dough truffles. YUMMY!

      Lol it’s true… it’s pretty much every day! ;) Thanks for stopping by!

    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

    • Jamielyn posted on September 13, 2012 at 8:54 pm (#

      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!

    What an easy and great recipe! I’m going to try it today…because I like that I can keep it in the freezer for those chocolate craving moments.

    love truffles and chocolate! how long will these last in the freezer?

  12. Jo Ann Hoekenga posted on September 25, 2012 at 8:37 pm (#

    Do you use milk chocolate chips or semi sweet?

  13. Ahrean posted on November 26, 2012 at 7:23 am (#

    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.

    • Karen posted on November 27, 2013 at 3:31 pm (#

      That sounds good . How much peanut butter to chocolate and what type chocolate did you use

  14. Julia posted on November 28, 2012 at 7:30 pm (#

    So easy & they looks amazing! I am def. going to have to try these out.

  16. Shannon posted on December 10, 2012 at 7:50 am (#

    What do you define as a “pan” of brownies? 9×13? 9×9? 8×8?

  17. KidSafeCandles posted on December 17, 2012 at 9:13 am (#

    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!!!

    • Jamielyn posted on December 17, 2012 at 10:45 am (#

      They are super yummy. Definitely try them next time. I hope you have a happy holidays! xo

  18. Helen posted on December 13, 2013 at 8:09 pm (#

    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!)

  19. Katie posted on January 23, 2014 at 9:25 pm (#

    These look absolutely amazing! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I am definitely going to make them

  21. Kelsie posted on February 9, 2014 at 4:29 pm (#

    About how many would you say this makes?

    • Jamielyn posted on February 13, 2014 at 9:49 pm (#

      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! :)

  22. Bonnie posted on May 11, 2014 at 7:14 pm (#

  23. Lyndsey posted on October 24, 2014 at 1:04 am (#

    I’m wondering the same thing as Shannon above: what size pan of brownies do you use? 13×9, 9×9 or 8×8?

  24. Vibha posted on April 19, 2015 at 9:22 am (#

    Hi. I had a few questions. Do you use milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips and how long in advance can they be made and how long can they stay in the freezer? Thanks.

    • Jamielyn posted on May 3, 2015 at 12:13 am (#

      I typically use milk chocolate, but semi sweet will work as well! :) These should freeze well if stored properly for a few weeks.

  25. Jodi posted on November 23, 2015 at 1:02 pm (#

    Quick questions:
    How many truffles does this recipe yield?
    Do you make the box brownies cake like or fudge like?

    • Community posted on November 23, 2015 at 5:11 pm (#

      How many truffles depends on the size you end up making them! If the box has two different instructions, I’d go with the fudge-y recipe, but that’s what I prefer – it will work either way! :)
