Peppermint Brownie Truffles

Course brownies, Dessert, truffles
Author divas can cook

Ingredients

  • 1 box of brownie mix prepared ( I used Duncan Hines Chewy, Fudgy Brownie Mix)
  • 6 oz white chocolate I used Bakers Premium White Chocolate baking squares
  • 12 candy canes I had a lot left over

Instructions

  • Bake brownies according to package for fudge-like brownies and let cool.
  • Use a mini ice cream scoop to scoop out the brownies from the pan. I leave the edges since they are hard and chewy. Eat them instead :)
  • Shape into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Place the balls in the freezer to firm up. (about 15-30 minutes)
  • Crush up the candy canes in a food processor, set aside.
  • Place the white chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave in intervals of 30 seconds, stirring, until completely melted.
  • Remove brownie balls from freezer.
  • Dip the brownies into the chocolate until completely coated. You may need to swirl it around. I stuck a toothpick into the balls to make this easier.
  • Place the truffles onto the wax paper, remove toothpick, and immediately sprinkle the tops with crushed peppermint.
  • Repeat with remaining brownie balls.
  • Let chocolate harden and enjoy!
  • Store in the fridge for best texture.

Notes

~TIPS~
I like these right out of the fridge. The texture is perfect that way!
Place truffles in mini cupcake liners in a tin for easy gift giving.
I use Bakers Premium White Chocolate bars. They melt so heavenly.
Be sure not to overbake brownies!
