Homemade Brownie Truffles recipe on TastesBetterFromScratch.com These brownie truffles are dangerously addicting and SO easy to make!

 

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.

Four images, brownies in a pan being broken into crumbs with a fork, brownie bits being dipped in melted chocolate, brownie bites cooling on parchment paper, a person holding a half eaten brownie bite.

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! 😉

Ingredients
  

  • 4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • Spinkles optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease well a 9×13'' inch pan.
  • Chop the butter and the unsweetened baking chocolate into chunks and place together in a microwave safe bowl. 
  • Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted. Set aside to cool, stirring occasionally.
  • In a large bowl beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. While mixing, slowly add the melted chocolate.
  • In a separate small bowl combine the flour and baking powder. Stir the flour into the chocolate batter, just until combined. 
  • Pour batter into greased pan and bake for 20-30 minutes or until a knife poked in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Once brownies are cool I like to cut off and remove the very outer edge where a "crust" sometimes forms. Then use a fork to fluff the mixture into crumbs. 
  • Take a small cookie scoop (or just use your hands) to roll the brownie crumbs into 30-35 small balls. 
  • Place them on a large, parchment lined baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until firm.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and butter in a double boiler or in the microwave until smooth. Use a spoon to roll the brownie balls in the melted chocolate--I remove them with a fork to allow the excess chocolate to drip off. 
  • Place the truffles carefully on parchment paper. At this point you could add sprinkles, if desired. 
  • Refrigerate until set. These are best stored in the fridge. Remove 5 minutes before serving.

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. I have a batch of slightly uncooked brownie so want to turn them into these amazing truffles! But, can you tell me if they will freeze well?
