Brownie Truffles – A delicious treat made with just 3 simple ingredients – brownies (boxed or homemade), chocolate, and cream cheese! Perfect for any holiday or party!
Prepare to have your mind blown by these brownie truffles. Now it may sound crazy but turning a simple batch of brownies into truffles might just be the greatest thing ever. After making a whole bunch of different truffles the past few months ranging from lemon truffles to red velvet truffles using boxed cake mix, I suddenly had the brilliant idea to use boxed brownie mix instead. The result was yummy brownie truffles rolled in chocolate!
Now you can totally make homemade brownies instead of boxed brownies, I just like the simplicity of just using boxed brownies when I make them. These are a great treat to serve for any holiday or party plus then can be store in either the fridge or freezer until you are ready to serve them.
Now just be aware, this is not a not bake recipe. You will need to actually make a batch of brownies and let them cool before turning them into truffles.
Common Questions About Making Brownie Truffles
What are brownie truffles?
Brownie truffles are brownies that are blended with cream cheese in a food processor, rolled into balls, and covered with chocolate.
Can I use white chocolate instead of chocolate?
You sure can! You could also drizzle them with white chocolate.
How should I decorate these truffles?
I like to just drizzle chocolate on top to help cover any imperfections but you could also add sprinkles to the top before the chocolate has melted.
Can I freeze the truffles?
Yes, freezing the truffles until you are ready to serve them works great.
What should I do if my truffle filling isn’t forming together?
If your truffles filling (brownies and cream cheese) is loose and isn’t forming into balls, try adding a bit more cream cheese and blending again. That helps them form together more.
Is this a no bake recipe?
Yes and no. I would lean more towards no because you do have to bake the box of brownies before turning it in to truffles. I usually do it the night before and let it sit on the counter until morning so that it fully cools.
Do I have to use boxed brownie mix?
Nope! Feel free to make a batch of your favorite brownie recipe. Just don’t make the frosting for it! You can also use different varieties of brownie recipes like Kahlua brownies or Bailey’s brownies if you want to give them a boozy flair.
