An insanely easy recipe for Dark Chocolate Truffles infused with spicy chile and a secret ingredient. This is a sponsored post.
Are you ready for 4th of July? Seriously, just yesterday it was January. Am I right? Well, if you are looking for an easy sweet treat for your 4th gathering, look no further. These dark chocolate truffles go together really quickly and are so tasty that your guests won’t even have a clue that they have a secret ingredient. Can you guess it?
It’s true. Really true and realllllly good. The dark chocolate hummus truffle mixture is enrobed in chile infused dark chocolate and sprinkled with fleur de sel. Of course, if you don’t like salt on your truffles (yes there are folks that will say “why put salt on it”) then feel free to sprinkle whatever you want on top. Maybe a little bit more chile?

Dark Chocolate Chile Truffles
Yield 12 servings
- Use a microplane or the smallest holes on a box grater and grate the dark chocolate very fine.
- In a medium bowl, add the grated chocolate, hummus, and ancho chili powder. Stir until combined. Cover tightly and refrigerate for an hour, or until firm.
- Use a hinged scoop and measure out 12 truffles on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Chill for 20-30 minutes.
- In a medium saucepan, add the chili-infused dark chocolate and melt over low heat, just until melted. Stir until smooth. Using a fork, dip the chilled truffle into the melted chocolate and coat on all sides. Remove to a cooling rack and sprinkle with a pinch of fleur de sel. Repeat with remaining truffles. Chill if not using right away. Allow to come to room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving.
