Using just 3 ingredients, make the most amazing melt-in-your-mouth, rich Chocolate Raspberry Truffles. They turn out stunning and make a beautiful gift.
Chocolate Raspberry Truffles are probably my all-time favorite chocolates. I once bought a very expensive raspberry truffle which I was hoping to share with Tim. However, his assumption was that I got it for him, so he ate the whole truffle. If you knew us, we share everything, so I’m not sure why he didn't share that truffle. Now when we get anything with chocolate and raspberries, we get it in bulk. Thankfully, these delicacies are easily made at home.
For the raspberry truffles you will need freezer dried raspberries. They can be found in most grocery stores in the dried fruit section. Typically I pick up a bag at Trader Joe's.
