One thing I love to make each holiday season is truffles. They are incredibly simple & are a huge hit with everyone. Every time I bring them to a holiday gathering they are one of the first things to disappear. Instead of making my usual chocolate covered truffles this year & decided to mix it up a bit & try a couple new things with them to create what I think are my best truffles yet.
The dark chocolate with the hint of salty from the pistachios- WOW.
Yep- these were gone in a flash.
Dark Chocolate Pistachio Truffles
- 2 cups Premium Dark Chocolate top quality dark chocolate is a MUST
- 1 package 8 oz. Cream Cheese - near room temperature
- 1 cup roughly chopped pistachios
Melt dark chocolate chips in a double boiler. Set aside to cool to almost room temperature
Place cream cheese in mixer & beat until creamy
Blend in melted chocolate.
Transfer to airtight container & refrigerate until firm. (at least 2 hours)
Shape in to balls, scooping with a melon baller works well.
Roll in chopped pistachios to coat
Return to baking sheet
Refrigerate on lined baking sheet for at least 1 hour to firm up
Store in a tightly covered container in refrigerator.
