Step By Step Making Of Cognac Truffles Recipe

Cognac Truffles


  • 3 1 oz square of unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 1/4 c confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/3 c butter
  • 3 egg yolks (I use the whites to make macaroons or meringue cookies)
  • 1 tsp vanilla or
  • 2 TBSP of cognac


1. Melt chocolate. Combine sugar and butter in bowl. Cream together. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time. Stir in melted chocolate and flavoring. Chill mixture. Break off pieces and form into balls. Roll in coating. Air-dry 1 hour. Store in air-tight container in very cool place. Makes about fifty truffles.

2. Suggested coatings: ground almonds or other nuts, cocoa, more melted chocolate, confectioners’ sugar, coconut, chocolate or colored jimmies.

Note: that this uses raw egg yolks. I find a melon baller to be very handy in forming the truffles.
