Christmas Truffles

Christmas Truffles recipe from Baking with Granny. Easy to make homemade Christmas pudding chocolate truffles, made with digestive biscuits and condensed milk.
When it comes to Christmas, who doesn’t love a wee home made gift? Especially one you can eat! If you’re looking for the perfect edible gift for friends and family, look no further than Granny’s Christmas Truffles.

As far as Christmas baking goes, it doesn’t get much easier than this. In fact, I feel like a bit of a fraud calling this baking as it’s nothing quite so complex; a few ingredients in a bowl, a bit of rolling and decorating…Before you know it you have a tray full of delicious, festive looking Christmas Truffles. So easy you can get the entire family involved!

Once you dress these truffles up with some petit-four cases and pop them into a nice little gift box, no one will quite believe you made these yourself and they didn’t in fact come from a high-end Chocolatier. Don’t worry, your secret is safe with us!

This has been a long standing favourite in the Baking with Granny family, with Granny being requested to make a batch most every year. It is also the recipe I demonstrated at Foodies Festival 2018.

"I made these for the post-run party at our running club. They went down a treat and were just what was needed after running round the streets dressed as Santas. Thanks so much for the recipe!"

Granny's Top Tips

• Holly leaf/berry sprinkles are usually easy enough to find during the festive period, however if you are struggling to get your hands on some, why not make your own with a small holly leaf cutter and some fondant icing.

• For truffles a little different than they normal chocolate flavour, why not mix things up by adding a little orange or mint extract to your truffle base.

•Although these truffles are decorated in a festive way, that’s not to say you can’t make them any time of year and simply skip the Christmas decals.

  1. Hi Amy, your sister Holly pointed me to your website- I’ve just made your Christmas truffles and Mars Bar cake recipes for my son’s school Christmas fair. They both turned out perfectly, thank you!

  2. HI Amy
    I made these for the post-run party at our running club. They went down a treat and were just what was needed after running round the streets dressed as Santas. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  3. Made these today as presents. They are a bit too sweet for my own personal taste so I added cocoa powder to the mix. Deeper chocolate taste and delicious. Thank you for the recipe.

  4. This is the same recipe I have been using since the
    early eighties from a WI book my Dad got me.
    Makes the best truffles & you can add various flavours.

  5. Hi, I have been making this exact recipe for probably about 45 years. Always a hit.. at Christmas I add some dark rum.
