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

  5. Roll the dough into 1 tablespoon size balls.

    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

    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!

    Chocolate secrets are THE BEST secrets to share with friends! Thanks for sharing this wicked secret, Anna. You ROCK! Cannot wait to try. Meanwhile, pinning! Have a lovely Sunday, girl. xo

    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.

  5. LoverOfAnythingChocolate says

    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?

    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.

  7. CrunchyCreamySw says

    lol The lighter ones in the lot are simply the same truffles but rolled in cocoa powder. :) But I love the idea of blondie truffles, Donna! Thank you!
