Warning: These 2 ingredient truffles are the easiest truffles you’ll ever make. I promise you won’t even swear once while making them. They are NO FUSS, creamy, and perfect to dunk into hot milk to make hot chocolate. I know you don’t believe me, but why would I lie?

You know what I’m the worst at? Making truffles. I fail at them every time. You know what I don’t fail at? Making cheater truffles with 2 ingredients, then using said truffles to make a slammin hot chocolate. I kind of win at that.

I hope you think I’m a liar and you go make these for yourself just to see if they really are the creamiest little truffle bites that you ever did make. {They are.} I covered some in tiny marshmallow bits, while others took a jump in the powdered sugar pool or the hot chocolate pool. I can’t pick a favorite though so I guess you’re just going to have to make them and decide for yourself. Maybe I haven’t fully expressed how much I want you to try making these.

And since you’ll be making these at home just to prove that I’m a liar you might as well heat up some milk and dunk your truffle in it. Give it a stir and watch those little 2 Ingredient Truffles turn your milk into delicious hot chocolate.

Yeah. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Want to know how to make them?

    That is my go-to fudge recipe. My favorite is chocolate frosting and dark chocolate chips, but any frosting and any chip work, there are so many possible combinations. I love the idea of making them into truffles, and putting them into hot milk for Hot Chocolate! Wow! Thanks for the great idea!

    Holy moly! This might be my deadliest discovery of the week. Who would have thought truffles could be so simple?! And dunking in hot milk sounds totally outragous. Love it.

    Literally one of the coolest recipes I’ve seen so far, and you make a lot of neat recipes 🙂 These are almost so simple and scrumptious looking it could be dangerous to have them around my college apt!

    How can these possibly have only 2 ingredients?!?! They look wonderful! And how can you go wrong with those 2 ingredients. Can’t wait to make these. And I love those marshmallow bits! Yum!

    No-fuss truffles? Sign me up. These look wonderful!

    Susie — February 12, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    Canned frosting and chocolate? Oh dear. No! Sorry, but I disagree with you on this one: we must have different tastes. Most truffles are only two ingredients anyway in my book – heavy cream and chocolate. Basically chilled ganache. Just as easy and much more natural! I won’t be using this recipe but am enjoying the rest of your blog.

    Katrina these are awesome! I made some of these last night for a work event – we’ll see hwo they go over!! I totally kept eating pieces though while making them. Dang, they’re tasty and so easy!! I ended up rolling mine around in chocolate sprinkles! I LOVE simple recipes like this one; I figure they’ll make my transition into preparing more homemade foods go smoothly! LOVE this website!! 🙂

    Help out an English person- is a can of frosting the thick liquid stuff you spread on cakes?

    Stephanie R. — December 20, 2015 at 11:50 pm

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe!! Instead of store bought icing I made homemade buttercream icing! So it ended up being more than two ingredients but my bf said that it made the best hot chocolate ever!! These are going in my xmas goodie bags along with homemade peppermint marshmallows! 😉

    Jersey Akasha — February 8, 2016 at 7:46 pm

    Katrina! I have been following you years! I put a simple twist on your recipe because my boyfriend doesn’t drink hot chocolate. For Early Valentines Day, I used Semi~Swet chips (more Truffle like) and I omitted 3 ounces of the white frosting then replaced with peanut butter! Dipped in chocolate or cocoa powder! They turned out awesome! You rock!
