They say that food tastes a hundred times better when you worked hard to make it.

But then, why would you need to go through a lot of trouble if you can create mouth watering chocolate truffles without breaking a sweat!

And we mean that both figuratively and literally, because there’s no heat involved in any of the recipes we’re showcasing in today’s post.

So for those of you who dread using your stovetop, oven or microwave, this recipe list is like a gift from the gods. And the resulting chocolate truffles are just as delectable and to die for as their “cooked” counterparts, so you can spend less time preparing and more time eating them!

Benefits of No-Cook Chocolate Truffles

So why should you go for no-cook chocolate truffles? Well, why not? You don’t need a reason to make delicious and effortless chocolate truffles. However, if you do need a bit of convincing, check out these stellar reasons why you should go for it!

  • It’s cheaper. Since most of these recipes use cocoa powder in lieu of melted chocolate, you also get an ingredient that is dual purpose. You can use cocoa powder for the truffle itself, and as dusting material. This means less ingredients to worry about and less money spent.
  • No mess, no stress! Sure, rolling with cocoa powder might get a little messy, but that’s nothing compared to the mess made by melted chocolate. If you’ve ever worked with melted chocolate before, either using a double boiler or a microwave, you know how messy it can get.
  • A lot of no-cook chocolate truffle recipes are healthier! This is because to make the recipe work without the usual chocolate and heavy cream combination, you need other sources of liquids. For most recipes,,juices from fruits like dates, cranberries, currants, avocados and others work like a charm in creating the perfect texture for truffles. If you’re a health buff, no-cook chocolate truffles are actually better for you!
  • Because there’s no cooking time, you’re cutting down the overall time needed to make the chocolate truffles. The average no cook chocolate truffle recipe will only take you 10-15 minutes tops. This is perfect for rushed chocolate truffle making when there’s unexpected guests or if you need an instant mood lifter after a particularly hard day.
  • Melted chocolate is pretty messy, and makes cleanup more difficult. And hey, we’re all about not breaking a sweat in today’s post. I’m sure that after making your truffles you want to relax and devour your creations, rather than cleaning up a messy kitchen and washing all utensils used. No-cook chocolate truffles means less things to clean, and that’s always a plus!

Tips and Tricks

Just because you’re making effortless, no-cook chocolate truffles, doesn’t mean you’re going to simply wing it and use whatever ingredients you can grab from the shelf. Since there’s no skill involved with these recipes, it’s the little things you do (or don’t do) that will determine whether your truffles are delectable or deplorable.

  • Since there’s no melted chocolate in any of these recipes, the chocolate flavor would always come from cocoa powder. While conventional unsweetened cocoa powder will work just fine, you may want to use Dutch-processed cocoa if it’s available in your area. Trust me, once you’ve tasted Dutch-processed cocoa, commercial unsweetened cocoa will taste mediocre in comparison.
  • Since cocoa powder is solid, you need to special care when mixing it with other ingredients. Make sure it spreads evenly and is thoroughly incorporated with other ingredients. If not, your truffles might taste uneven, with some parts tasting extra chocolatey while others are lacking in any chocolate flavor.
  • To ensure even distribution of cocoa powder, you can also mix it with the butter first before introducing it to other ingredients.
  • If you ever find a recipe that you want to try, but then get discouraged when there’s cooking or melting involved, here’s an excellent trick for us lazy folks. For each ounce of melted chocolate needed in a recipe, you can substitute it with 3 tablespoons cocoa powder plus 1 tablespoon butter. This way, you don’t have to skip through any recipes you find online just because there’s melted chocolate involved.
  • If your mixture comes off as too liquid-y, just place it inside the refrigerator until it’s firm enough to shape properly.
  • You can dust your hands with cocoa powder to make the rolling process easier.
  • Pay attention to the yields of each recipe and make sure you know what to do with the truffles once you’re done with them. Normally, truffles have a 10-14 day lifespan, but if you’re using fresh fruits, the life span is decreased to 1 week.
  • While all truffles are better refrigerated, it’s difficult to eat straight from the fridge. If you want to serve some truffles to your guests, take them out of the fridge and allow them to sit at room temperature for 12-30 minutes. This should soften the truffles just enough so that it’s easy to bite into.

Conclusion

Believe me, I know the feeling of wanting something sweet and tasty to lift my mood during bad days, but hey, you’re already having a bad day so the thought of making any effort on anything isn’t very appealing. However, not all tasty treats need a watchful eye and precise movements. Chocolate truffles, especially the no-cook kind, only require basic “throwing every ingredient together in a bowl” skills and enough leftover energy to chomp down on your creations.

So the next time you find yourself with spare cocoa powder in your pantry, and you want to reward yourself with a delectable treat without breaking a sweat, try no cook chocolate truffles. In a few minutes, with minimal ingredients, you can have something that’s as delicious as something you could have slaved over for hours, maybe even better!
