Ahh chocolate and strawberry, they go together like milk and cookies, like peanut butter and jelly, like chips and dip – you get the idea. So it only made perfect sense to combine chocolate and strawberry in these decadent Chocolate Strawberry Truffles. They are easy to make, are a perfect gift and go together quickly and did I mention – they are delicious!

You gotta love a dessert that looks impressive but it’s really easy! I love making Gourmet Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, they look so impressive on your dessert table, but are super easy to make. These Chocolate Strawberry Truffles are equally impressive looking, but with just a few ingredients, you can have them ready in a snap!
The centers of the truffles are soft and creamy, and the addition of chopped of almonds gives them a little crunch. You could also roll them in powdered sugar for a different flavor.
Creating gift baskets with special treats for family and friends is something I love to do. It really doesn’t matter what holiday, whether it’s Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween or especially Christmas, adding delicious baked goods like these Chocolate Strawberry Truffles to gift baskets is perfect!
