Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

Chocolate Raspberry Truffles ~ incredibly easy, fun and colorful truffles!

I don’t really decorate for any other holidays besides Christmas. I will switch things around sometimes and decorate with spring or fall items, but I don’t have a lot of holiday decor. I do, however love having fun holiday treats around to provide a fun pop of color and holiday flair. Having festive treats around makes the holidays feel a little more special. These Chocolate Raspberry Truffles are the perfect way to add a little fun to your Valentine’s Day.

I have a deep love for truffles. Mysterious and beautiful, you never know what fun flavor is hiding behind their dark chocolate shell. I’m pretty sure that there was never a truffle I’ve tried that I didn’t like. Everything is better with chocolate, right?

These truffles are incredibly easy to make. There is no need to dip them. You just prepare the chocolate, add a little raspberry sauce, roll them into balls and coat them with sprinkles, nuts or powdered sugar. That’s it. Β The raspberry flavor is subtle and simple. It adds just a hint of sweet raspberry flavor. These chocolate raspberry truffles would make the perfect treat to share with your special Valentine or even the entire family. Make sure to stop by later this week for more fun Valentine’s Day recipes, including more truffles.

  14. Susan

    I love making truffles but I’ve never done it with sweetened condensed milk before! Is the taste different? Sweeter? I’m curious!

    • Ashley

      Hi Susan, the sweetened condensed milk does add a subtle sweetness to the chocolate and results in a more creamy texture.

  15. Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen

    These are so cute, Ashley! I just adore chocolate and raspberry together. I made some pretzel chocolates last year and used these same sprinkles. They’re so fun to work with. Great minds think and eat alike, girl! Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚ Pinning!

    • Ashley

      Yes, great minds do thinks alike πŸ™‚ I can’t resist cute sprinkles. Thanks for pinning, Stacy!

  16. Amy @ Homey Oh My!

    Beautiful and saliva inducing as always, Ashley.
    I’m the opposite- I have tons of seasonal/holiday decor and never make holiday treats. I really want to work on that!!!

    • Ashley

      I wish we lived closer, then we could trade seasonal decor for delicious holiday treats πŸ™‚
