Chocolate Truffle Recipes That Make Storebought Candies Feel Ashamed

Roll your way to chocolatey paradise.

If you think making chocolate truffles is something only Godiva or Vosges can do, you couldn't be more wrong. Chocolate truffle recipes are so easy to make -- like, stupid easy to make -- even easier than baking cookies. That's why chocolate truffles are the best confection to make for holiday gifting. Not only will people be impressed, but it will be delicious and no one will know how little effort you had to put into making them.

With just a couple of ingredients (good quality chocolate is a must here) and some creativity, you can make chocolate truffles to rival the best chocolatiers. With the recipes we gathered below -- like the salted caramel and whiskey -- that won't be hard to do.
