RECIPE: Halloween Truffles

RECIPE: Halloween Truffles #treat #chocolate
I’ve wanted to try my hand at making chocolate truffles for a while now. I remember a friend making them for a craft night and they were so good! I finally spent an afternoon making these Halloween inspired chocolate truffles. They turned out perfect- rich, creamy, and bittersweet chocolate. I love the look of the colored sprinkles and think these would make a great Halloween gift to any chocolate-lover!
