Ingredients for No-Bake Truffles

- 2 Tablespoon chocolate syrup
- 2 Tablespoon corn syrup
- ¼ cup water
- 1 cup Valentine’s Day sprinkles
How To Make Valentine Brownie Truffles
Step 1: Pour the brownie mix into a large bowl. Heat in 30-second intervals, stirring between each. Do this process for about 1 ½ minutes or until the temperature of the brownie batter mixture is 160 degrees. (To check this, use an instant-read thermometer to check the temp)
Step 2: Next, add corn syrup, water, and chocolate syrup.
Step 3: Stir until lumps are gone and better is smooth. Your batter will be thick.
Step 3: Scoop out 1 tablespoon of the brownie mixture and roll it between the palms of your hands to form a ball. (Dampen your hands first to keep the dough from sticking to them).
Step 4: Place truffle in the decorative sprinkles and roll it around until it’s completely covered. Place on a baking sheet and repeat with the remaining truffles.
Step 5: Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator and let the truffles chill for one hour before eating.
Tips & Tricks
- Use a cookie scoop: Use a small cookie scoop to be sure all your truffles are the same size.
- Variations: You can easily change the flavor by adding in nuts, milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips or even a little peanut butter. You can even switch it up and use a dark chocolate brownie mix.
- Dip in chocolate: For more variation, you can dip the truffles in white chocolate or melted chocolate wafers before adding your sprinkles. The chocolate coating on truffles adds even more delicious texture and taste!
Store these in an airtight container and refrigerate and your truffles will be good for up to seven days.
Yes, you can absolutely freeze these. Freezing your truffles is a great way to be sure you always have something sweet on hand for whenever your sweet tooth starts craving chocolate!
Just place them on a cookie sheet and freeze for about 2-3 hours. Then transfer the truffles in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag and they’ll stay good for up to three months.
Melted chocolate wafers, almond bark, or even semi-sweet chocolate chips all work for dipping your truffles. Just be sure to melt the chocolate slowly. Then set the truffles, one at a time, on a fork and dip into the chocolate. Let the excess drizzle off, then add sprinkles before the chocolate sets.
One little bite of these chocolate brownie truffles and they may just become your new favorite brownie recipe!

When creating a recipe with raw flour, it's important to heat it in the microwave just in case there's any bacteria. We choose to do this with the brownie mix too, just to be safe.
