Easy Chocolate Truffle Recipe - these truffles are light and creamy!

When I was growing up, my mom used to make these simple truffles all the time. We called them mudballs, and that’s still what my kids call them. Whatever you call them, they are amazingly simple and delicious!

I like them best with toasted almonds in them, but you can make them plain if you want. It is hard to believe something so easy can be so yummy. 🙂

How to make simple chocolate truffles.

For years I made these with regular Hershey bars, but now I prefer to use Symphony bars. I’ve used the plain milk chocolate, but I really love the Almond Toffee Symphony Bars.

Creamy chocolate truffle recipe - everyone loves these chocolate truffles!

I rolled them in graham cracker crumbs this time because that is what I had, but you can roll them in anything you like. My mom usually used finely crushed vanilla wafers.

Chocolate Truffle Recipe, the Easy Way!
Cool and creamy chocolate truffles that are ridiculously simple.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 4 4.25oz Symphony bars
  • 12 oz container of Cool Whip
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds
  • 2/3 graham cracker crumbs, vanilla wafers, coconut, or finely chopped almonds


Melt chocolate at 50% power in a large glass bowl in the microwave. Chill for about 10 minutes, till cool but not cold.

Quickly beat in the Cool Whip and beat till fluffy. Add almonds if desired. Chill till firm, at least 1 hour. (You can speed the process up by placing the bowl in the freezer instead.)

Roll into balls and coat with crumbs, nuts, or coconut. Store in the refrigerator.


-You can use any chocolate you like, just as long as you use approximately 16 ounces. I've used regular Hershey bars, and even melted chocolate chips.
-If you use the Almond Toffee Symphony bars, you can omit the chopped almonds.
