These Chocolate Mint Truffles are inspired by the classic flavor pairing I absolutely adore. The love began with Baskin Robbins chocolate chip mint ice cream. A flavor, I must admit, remains a favorite to this day.

And then came the Andes Chocolate Mints. They were and are divine.

But nothing can compare to these 3-ingredient Chocolate Mint Truffles, to me.

While I’ll always love Boehm’s Chocolate Truffles or Frango Mints — it’s equally rewarding to make my own.

And, incredibly easy. So easy you won’t want to divulge that secret to the recipient of your homemade holiday truffles. .

They are special enough for gifts, perfect for the holidays, and indulgent enough for a pillow treat on Valentine’s Day.

Decoration Ideas

They are just as delicious plain, but become fancy and special when rolled in simple ingredients. Here are some ideas:

  • Chopped nuts
  • Cocoa powder
  • Multi-colored sprinkles
  • Chocolate shavings
  • Cookie crumbs
  • Shredded coconut
  • Green tinted icing glaze
  • Sea salt

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you make these truffles ahead?

Yes! They actually freeze really well, great if you want to get ahead for the holidays. I usually freeze about half the batch.

What do you use to shape the mixture into perfect balls?

I use a 1-inch cookie scoop.
