Did you know you can make truffles using only two ingredients? Cocoa powder and a can of sweetened condensed milk—that’s all ya need. Pour a can of sweetened condensed milk into a saucepan, stirring over medium heat until you see bubbles form. Next, pour the hot milk into a bowl, to which you’ll slowly add 1 cup of cocoa, making sure to sift out any clumps and stirring until it looks like brownie batter.
Place the mixture in the fridge until it firms up. Once it’s ready, roll the mixture into small balls (about 2 tablespoons worth for each one), then lightly dust with more cocoa powder. The mixture is really sticky, so to keep everything from sticking to the spoon, I recommend spritzing it with a little bit of cooking oil.
An alternative is to press the mixture into a pan lined with plastic wrap, let it chill, then cut it into small squares, which you then dust with a light coating of cocoa powder.
If you feel like getting REALLY fancy, you can even make three-ingredient white chocolate truffles. Wild, I know, but this will add in a little extra variety to satisfy all of your chocolate needs.
To make these, melt 1 pound of white chocolate with 1 can of sweetened condensed milk; stir in 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract, and let the mixture chill in the fridge until firm (about 3 hours).
Finally, one at a time, roll about 2 tablespoons worth into a small ball, dip the truffle into a bowl of melted white chocolate, and top with whatever else suits your fancy, such as shredded coconut, chopped nuts, or sprinkles.
