Easy Chocolate Truffles in the Microwave

Easy Chocolate Truffles in the Microwave

I was wondering what to make with leftover heavy cream. I'd never tried chocolate truffles, so I wanted to see if there was a hassle-free method of just using the microwave.

Heating times will differ on your microwave, so check on the chocolate while you work. Recipe by Hokkori-no



15 servings
  1. 100 grams Milk chocolate
  2. 20 grams Butter
  3. 50 ml Heavy cream
  4. To finish
  5. 1 Cocoa powder (unsweetened)


  1. Change

    Using a knife or your hands, chop the chocolate into 5 mm pieces. Slice the butter into 5 mm pieces. Place both in a heatproof bowl.

  2. Change

    Microwave at 600 W for 1.5 minutes to melt. Use a whisk to mix well.

  3. Change

    In another heatproof container, pour in the heavy cream, and microwave at 600 W for 30 seconds.

  4. Change

    Add the cream from Step 3 to the bowl from Step 2, and combine well with a whisk.

  5. Change

    Pour the mixture from Step 4 into chocolate molds using a spoon. Rap the tray on a flat surface several times to pop air bubbles.

    Once your truffles have hardened, remove from the mold. Sprinkle with cocoa powder with a tea strainer.

  8. Change

    If you use silicone molds, the chocolates will be easier to remove if you push them up from the bottom.

    When storing the chocolates at home, keep them in a sealed container in the fridge.
