The taste is spot on! Just like brownie batter. You have to try these!

I may or may not make a batch every Wednesday before “Nashville”. icon smile Brownie Batter Truffles Recipe Because these little balls of chocolatey indulgence (and they truly are indulgent) are a no-fuss treat for  chocoholics like me.

But if you are planning to share them with someone, you may want to double the batch. They go fast!

    Anna, I love you for sharing this recipe with us but dang, girl. This is dangerous knowledge! I can see myself stockpiling these babies in my freezer so that I can eat them every day, lol.

    • CrunchyCreamySw

  • Georgia The Comfort of Cooking

    OMG, Anna. This is the type of treat I’d freeze to stop myself from eating it, only to find out it tastes fudgier and chewier frozen. Danger, danger!

    • CrunchyCreamySw

      Agreed! Thanks, Georgia!

  • LoverOfAnythingChocolate

    How long do you refrigerate it before dipping? If you don’t want to dip it, because you just want to eat it, then do you need to refrigerate it?

    • CrunchyCreamySw

      Refrigerate it until it’s set like fudge. It should be scoopable.

  • Curry and Comfort

    My oh my!! I would seriously be in some danger of gaining a pants size with these around. I love them. :) You did a gorgeous job. :)

    • CrunchyCreamySw

      :) Thank you, my friend!

  • Stephanie @ Girl Versus Dough

    I may or may not have literally gasped when I saw the photo of the cut-open truffle and how dense it is. OH MY LAW.

    • CrunchyCreamySw

      Thanks, Stephanie! They are incredible!

  • Involuntary Housewife

    lol Thanks, Colette!

  • CrunchyCreamySw

    Hi Mukta! Thank you for trying the recipe. I am afraid there is not much you can do about the sugar. You can use powdered sugar but it’s a brownie batter truffle – it needs the brown sugar. Hope you enjoyed them anyways!

  • Mckenzi <3

    These are very very yummy! Note that these are VERY VERY rich. If you are not a huge chocolate fan, don’t make them. I dipped half of mine in semi sweet chocolate chips, and the other half in Reese’s PB chips. They were sooooooooooo good! :) <3
