Dark Chocolate Truffles with Caramel

These dark chocolate truffles with caramel are the perfect decadent dessert you need this holiday season.

Melt the coarsely chopped dark chocolate in the microwave until smooth. If you struggle with this, you can find detailed instructions in the recipe link!

In a small saucepan, heat up your heavy cream until it comes to a simmer.

To start on the caramel base - cook sugar and water in a saucepan while swirling it until the liquid is amber colored.

Remove the pan from the heat and add in the warmed heavy cream while whisking. Add this mixture to the melted chocolate and whisk more.

Add some sea salt and whisk again. Transfer the mixture to a shallow bowl and let it cool in the refrigerator.

Once it has cooled, scoop up the filling and roll it into balls. Refrigerate to let them firm up, then dip into tempered chocolate and let them set once more.

Enjoy these dark chocolate truffles as a snack or an easy dessert!
