Brownie Fudge Truffles

I had some little chunks of brownie in the freezer I had intended to use for another purpose when these truffles occurred to me. (Yes, my freezer is filled with an endless horde of goodies...ehehehe.) So I zipped together the one minute fudge with a few modifications and made some chocolate covered magic.

I wouldn't recommend you use a really fudgy brownie recipe for this....because honestly you probably wouldn't need the added fudge. You could just roll a really fudgy brownie into a ball and have a truffle center without any additions. Though I bet that would be a tasty experiment. ;)

Brownie Fudge Truffles

Favorite brownie recipe (a 9x9 sized batch)
14 oz non fat sweetened condensed milk
6 oz milk chocolate chips
6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
12 oz milk chocolate chips
1.5 tbls shortening

Crumble brownies into a bowl. In another bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and vanilla. Heat in the microwave, stirring at 30 second intervals. You should only need about a minute or so for your chocolate to melt. Stir in marshmallows and mix until they melt into your chocolate. You may need to heat just a bit more in the microwave to get the marshmallows fully careful not to overheat.

Stir about a third of the fudge into the brownie crumbs and mix. Add another third and mix again. Add as much remaining fudge as you need. You should use almost the entire batch of fudge, but mixing it together in thirds will make sure you get the texture you are looking for. The brownie crumbs and fudge will form one large fairly solid ball of chocolate. Form into balls by spoonfuls and put on waxed paper. Chill for at least an hour.

Melt milk chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave, stirring often. Be careful that you don't overheat your chocolate. You want the chocolate thin enough to coat the back of a spoon smoothly. If it isn't thin enough add additional shortening and heat a bit longer. Dip brownie centers into chocolate and place on waxed paper. When you have dipped all the centers, use a fork to drizzle stripes across the tops of the truffles. Put them in the fridge to finish setting up.

A pic of the truffles all bare....hehehehe....
Unruly little buggers to dip I tell you! ;) They kept rolling off the fork I was using to dip them into the chocolate. Though it just hit me they held their shape really really well so they probably had less of a flat bottom than most truffles do.


  1. These just look amazing. Wonderful job!

  2. OMG! I'm having major freezer envy now. Sorry took me a while to answer, but somehow your comment went to my spam file. My site act nasty like that sometimes. Those little babies look so delicious.
