Treat friends and family (or yourself) to these decadent tasting Almond Chocolate Truffles. They are easy to make with ingredients and equipment you probably have in your kitchen right now.
These truffles came about when I needed a little homemade gift for a friend at the last minute. I modified my mother-in-law's Sour Cream Mocha Truffles recipe, which are also delightful, especially if you like coffee.
What type of chocolate should you use for Almond Chocolate Truffles?
Because of the sour cream and butter, I went with stronger less sweet dark chocolate. They were definitely chocolatey without being overly sweet, which is something I love.
These are not sugar free, but are very low in sugar, especially if you use dark chocolate chips.
If you want them a bit sweeter, go for semi-sweet chips or add a little sugar to the pan when melting the chocolate. Start with just a tablespoon or two and taste it before adding more.
