These Brownie Truffles are made from scratch and are one of our favorite holiday treats! Easy to make and completely addicting!
Lately my social media feeds have been blowing up with “oreo” truffles. Don’t get me wrong, oreo truffles are pretty good….but I’m going to let you in on a little secret. They’ve got nothing on these homemade BROWNIE TRUFFLES! An easy, homemade, gooey, fudgey brownie rolled and dipped in chocolate! These little devils have been dangerous to my waistline.
They start with a basic homemade brownie recipe. I will not judge you if you decide to use a box brownie mix, instead. 🙂
After the brownies are baked, use a fork to crumble them, while they’re warm. Then scoop the brownie little handfulls of crumbles and roll them tightly into a ball. Freeze them for half and hour. They will be easier to manage and dip in chocolate when they are hard and cold.
When the brownies are nearly set in the freezer, melt your chocolate.
Be sure to use high quality chocolate, for melting. I often use Baker’s brand semi-sweet chocolate squares.
If all you have are chocolate chips, I would suggest adding a few tablespoons of butter to them to help them melt.
Dip the brownie balls in melted chocolate. Drizzle them with extra chocolate, or add a few sprinkles on top, if you want them to be extra cute.
I made usually make these with the full intention of giving them as neighbor Christmas gifts, but honestly, they often don’t make it out of the house! Whoops! 😉

Brownie Truffles Recipe
- 1 pan Brownies *, baked in a 9x13 inch pan
- 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips , Guittard or Ghirardelli*
- chocolate spinkles , optional
- Prepare and bake brownies according to recipe instructions. Do not over bake them, as this recipe works best with soft chewy brownies.
- Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside.
- Form into balls: Once brownies have cooled, use a fork crumble them up, scoop 1 heaping tablespoon into your hands and press together to form into a ball. Should make about 35 balls.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler (I make my own by placing a heat proof bowl over a pot of lightly simmering water), or in the microwave, stirring often until smooth.
- Coat in chocolate: Drop brownie ball into the bowl of melted chocolate and use a fork to coat it on all sides, then lift up and allow the excess chocolate to drip off into bowl.
- Place on prepared pan and top with sprinkles if desired. Allow to set up at room temperature, or refrigerate for a few minutes until chocolate sets.

These came out beautifully! So simple to make. I did bake about 10 minutes longer, because the batter didn’t seem to want to set, but still very moist. I had a little trouble with the dipping chocolate when I used the butter, so ended up using a little bit of shortening to thin it out.
All in all, very good! I just went and got a cookie scoop and I’m fixing to make more 😉
I feel like i did something wrong. My brownies were extremely greasy when I went to roll them. I baked until the stick in the center came out clean which was about 25 minutes. the crumbs tasted moist. They are in the freezer now. I will see what happens after they are frozen and chocolate covered.
I’ve been making brownie balls for years now, both box mix and homemade, and everyone loves them. I make one addition after the brownies are baked by mixing in chocolate frosting, it makes them extra fudgy. I also use a food processor to break up the brownies, its quick and efficient and you don’t have to cut off the edges, unless you just like to eat them.
