Chocolate Truffles

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
  • 100 g milk chocolate, small pieces or callets
  • 300 g double cream
  • 20 g unsalted butter, diced
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt
  • 4 tsp brandy


  • 20 g desiccated coconut
  • 20 g cocoa powder
  • 80 g pistachio nuts, unsalted
  • 80 g roasted hazelnuts



  1. Place dark chocolate and milk chocolate in mixing bowl then grate 10 sec/speed 8.
  2. Add cream, butter and salt then melt 5 min/50°C/speed 3. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula then melt again 1-2 min/50°C/speed 2 until smooth. Set scales to zero then remove 350 g mixture to a bowl (scales will show -350 g) and set aside.
  3. Add brandy and mix 6 sec/speed 3. Transfer to another bowl, cover and label each bowl then set aside in fridge until just firm (approx. 2 hours). Meanwhile, clean mixing bowl and prepare coatings.


  1. Place a bowl on mixing bowl lid, weigh in coconut and set aside. Place another bowl on mixing bowl lid, weigh in cocoa powder and set aside.
  2. Place pistachios in mixing bowl and chop 2 sec/speed 6. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Place hazelnuts in mixing bowl and chop 2 sec/speed 6. Transfer to another bowl and set aside.


  1. Once chocolate is just firm, take approx. ½ heaped Tbsp mixture at a time and roll into balls, then roll in coating of choice. Place in gift boxes or wrap in cellophane to give as gifts.

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.
