In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the chocolate chips, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and salt. Heat gently, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat!

Tip: If using a double boiler, fill the bottom pan with water and bring to a simmer. Place the top pan with the chocolate mixture over the simmering water, making sure the bottom pan doesn’t touch the water. Heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth.

Step 2: Chill the truffle mixture

Pour the melted chocolate mixture into a shallow bowl or baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm enough to scoop.

Step 3: Shape the truffles

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a spoon or your hands, scoop out the chilled chocolate mixture and roll into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter.

Tip: For perfectly round truffles, use a small melon baller or cookie scoop. Wet your hands slightly to prevent sticking.

Step 4: Dip and decorate!

Place the chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.

Using a fork, dip each truffle ball into the melted chocolate, letting any excess drip off. Gently tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove any remaining chocolate.

Now comes the fun part! Decorate your truffles with Easter egg sprinkles, chopped nuts, or even edible glitter. Place the dipped truffles back on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 5: Refrigerate and enjoy!

Refrigerate the truffles for at least 30 minutes, or until the chocolate coating is firm. Then, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

These Velvety Chocolate Easter Egg Truffles are sure to be a hit with everyone! They’re the perfect way to add a touch of Easter cheer to your celebration.

Happy Easter!
