Christmas Gifting – Thermomix Chocolate Truffles

Christmas is around the corner and homemade Christmas gifts are a great cost-saving and a way to show you care. Here’s a recipe for Chocolate Truffles made in the Thermomix and the cost saving you can have compared to buying it.



  • 300 g dark chocolate, small pieces or callets

Hints & Tips

  • These rich, indulgent truffles wouldn’t look out of place in a chocolatiers window, and they are deceptively simple to make when you have a Thermomix®! Stored in the fridge until ready to package up, these make a beautiful gift for your friends and family; simply adjust the flavour and coatings according to their tastes.
  • Adjust flavourings according to taste. Orange extract, peppermint extract, almond extract, Cointreau, Kahlua or cherry brandy also work well.
  • The coatings can be varied too; try chopping different types of nuts, freeze-dried strawberries or raspberries.
