  • Brownie Truffles – An easy sweet treat made with just 3 simple ingredients. These delicious brownie balls are perfectly fudgy and full of rich chocolate flavor.

    I love making truffles to bring to parties or celebrate special occasions. They’re super easy to make, yet look fancy and taste amazing. These brownie truffles are a favorite, as well as sugar cookie truffles, chocolate truffles, Oreo balls and chocolate chip cookie dough truffles.

    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 brownie truffles, my friends, are the perfect treat to stash in your freezer…for those days! Ahem… your chocolate stash.

    And trust me when I say that these chocolate brownie balls are SO GOOD! I should have put a key on my stash because they were gone a little too soon. ;) Perfectly fudgy and full of rich chocolate flavor.

    The best part about these brownie truffles is that they are so simple to make, yet they taste extravagant! Bring them to your next party and people will be begging for the recipe. Seriously addicting!

    Only 3 ingredients!

    • Brownie mix: Just one box brownie mix made according to directions on package.
    • Cream cheese: Half a block of cream cheese that is softened and smooth.
    • Chocolate chips: For melting and coating the truffles. Melting wafers work too.

    How to make brownie truffles

    Step 1: Bake brownies 

    Bake brownies according to directions on package. Make sure to not over bake. Let cool completely.

    Step 2: Combine brownies and cream cheese 

    Scoop out brownies into a large bowl (leave out any hard edges). Then add in the softened cream cheese and mix together until combined.

    Step 3: Roll mixture into balls 

    Roll the brownie mixture into balls and then place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Place in the freezer until the brownie balls firm up, about 30 minutes.

    Step 4: Coat brownie balls with chocolate 

    Melt the chocolate chips in a medium-sized bowl in the microwave. Then place the brownie ball on a fork and dip into the chocolate. Spoon chocolate on top as well. Once the ball is totally covered, tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate. Place truffle carefully on the parchment paper.

    Step 5: Place brownie truffles in freezer 

    Once all balls are coated, place the baking sheet in the freezer until the chocolate hardens. These brownie balls are best kept in the freezer. Remove about 5 minutes before serving.

    Tips for perfect brownie truffles

    • Use a small cookie scoop to form mixture into equal sized brownie balls.
    • If the edges of your brownies have hardened, don’t use them. You want a soft, fudgy mixture.
    • Milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips both work as coating. Melting wafers work too.
    • Feel free to leave plain or top truffles with sprinkles, drizzled chocolate or extra brownie crumbles.
    • To store: Will keep in fridge for up to 1 week if stored in an airtight container or bag.
    • To freeze: Place in freezer bag or container and store in freezer for up to 1 month.
