How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Place foil or paper baking cups into mini muffin pan cups; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in bowl; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Beat all remaining crust ingredients in bowl at medium speed until well mixed. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed after each addition.

  4. STEP 4

    Shape dough into 36 (1 1/4-inch) balls; place into prepared pans. Press dough evenly onto bottom and up sides, forming cup. Bake 5-6 minutes or until centers begin to set. Let stand in pan 10 minutes. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. Remove foil or paper, if desired.

  5. STEP 5

    Place dark chocolate in bowl. Combine whipping cream and 1 1/2 teaspoons butter in saucepan; cook over medium-low heat until edges of cream begin to bubble. Immediately pour over chocolate. Let stand 2-3 minutes; stir until smooth.

  6. STEP 6

    Spoon 1 teaspoon filling into each crust. Place truffle onto filling, pressing down slightly.

  7. STEP 7

    Top truffles with remaining warm filling. Decorate with sprinkles, if desired.

Tip #1

- A tart tamper will make quick work when forming cups. It can be purchased at baking and cooking stores.

Tip #2

Variation: Hazelnut Chocolate Truffle Cups. Omit filling. Prepare and bake cups as directed above. Spoon 1 teaspoon hazelnut spread into each cup; top with 1 chocolate-covered hazelnut candy.
