• 120 grams (4.23 ounces) milk chocolate
  • 60 grams (2.12 ounces) cream 33-35%
  • 14 grams (0.49 ounces) invert sugar or honey
  • 32 grams (1.13 ounces) butter
  • 7 grams (0.25 ounces) cognac, liquor or rum
  • 15 grams (0.53 ounces) dried apricots or raisins
  • 15 grams (0.53 ounces) waffle crumbs
  • 30 grams (1.06 ounces) milk chocolate for boning sweets


  • Microwave

    Essential for quickly heating the cream and sugar mixture. Don't have one? You can also use a stovetop!

  • Immersion Blender

    This helps create a smooth ganache. A regular whisk can work too, but it might take a bit more effort.

  • Cling Film

    Important for covering the ganache while it sets in the fridge. Keeps it from forming a crust!

  • Baking Tray

    A nice flat surface for rolling your truffles. You can use a plate if you're in a pinch.

  • Refrigerator

    To let the ganache stabilize overnight. Patience is key!


Step 1

Are there any chocolate truffle lovers here? A box of delicious handmade truffles will not leave anyone indifferent. This time we would like to share a recipe for milk chocolate truffles with cognac and dried apricots. The combination is wonderful! Try it!

Step 2

Step 1: Mix the cream with the sugar or honey and heat until boiling in the microwave. Pour this mixture over the milk chocolate. Ensure the chocolate melts fully by stirring gently.

Step 3

Step 2: Add the alcohol (whichever you like from the ingredients list) and mash with an immersion blender. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, simply omit this step.

Step 4

Step 3: Chop the dried apricots or raisins and add them to the chocolate mixture. You can add both or choose either one. Cover the mixture with cling film, making sure it has full contact with the mixture, and refrigerate for stabilization for 12 hours or overnight. This will allow the mixture to set properly into a dense ganache.

Step 5

Step 4: Once the chocolate ganache is dense, scoop and roll it into 20 gram (0.70 oz) balls. Cover each truffle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with waffle crumbs. Alternatively, you can use ground nuts or cocoa. Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to ensure uniform sized truffles.

Step 6

This dessert is perfect for any occasion as it is not trivial; it will definitely surprise your guests! If you want to adapt it for kids, just omit the alcohol. Store the truffles in the fridge. Bon Appetit!
