There are certain flavor combinations in this world that were just MEANT TO BE such as peanut butter and jelly or even chocolate and caramel.

Well, I think another flavor combination that was also meant to be but gets overlooked is chocolate and cranberry!

I love how the deep chocolate flavor compliments the sweet and tangy cranberry flavor.

These creamy and choco-licious truffles are sooooo FUDGY and rolling them around in Craisins® Dried Cranberries really takes them over the top!

By the way, did you know that a 1/4 cups of Craisins® Dried Cranberries is equivalent to 1/2 cup serving of fruit?

Woohoo for that coz I WON’T feel guilty eating these truffles any more…hahah 😛chocolate cranberry truffles 4To make these chocolate cranberry truffles, you will need the following ingredients:

3 cups chocolate chips
14 oz condensed milk (about 1 cup)
1 cup chopped Original Craisins®
1 cup chopped Cherry Juice Infused Craisins®

Notes:
– You can use sweetened or unsweetened condensed milk. Both work well.
– You also also roll the truffles in chopped nuts, cocoa powder or even powdered sugar.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Add the chocolate chips and condensed milk in a bowl.

Step 2:
Melt everything in the microwave and mix everything properly so that there are no lumps.

Step 3:
Chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours so that the mixture becomes easier to handle.

Step 4:
While the mixture is chilling, chop up the Craisins®.

Step 5:
Use an ice cream scooper to scoop out small portions of the truffle mixture and roll them into a ball.

Step 6:
Roll the truffle balls in a bowl of chopped up cranberries, until they are properly covered.

Step 7:
Now, enjoy!
Store any leftovers in the fridge in a box lined with parchment paper or wax paper.

And you are done!
