How to Set Up a Truffle Bar

I created this truffle bar last January for Style At Home and realized I never posted the photos on Sugar and Charm! Since Valentine’s Day is coming up in two weeks I thought I would share my idea for a truffle bar. I used Ina’s amazing truffle recipe and the placed them all on a plate. Then I set out 4 toppings that would taste great on top of a melt-in-your-mouth truffle! I used chopped hazelnut, powdered sugar, cocoa powder and coconut and they were all delicious! At the end of the bar I set out milk because those truffles are rich and nothing goes better with them than a glass of milk (or chocolate milk)! You can package them up in white to-go boxes and tie it with twine. I think they would make an excellent Valentine’s treat for co-workers and friends too! Read Ina’s truffle recipe below 🙂


Ina’s Truffles
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 oz bitter sweet chocolate
4 oz semi sweet chocolate
1 1/2 Grand Marnier
1 tablespoon prepared coffee
1/2 vanilla extract


Heat the heavy cream just under boiling, it will boil quickly so put it to simmer until it’s hot.
Chop the chocolate and place in a glass bowl. Pour the hot heavy cream over the chocolate to melt the chunks.
Add the vanilla, hot coffee and Grand Marnier
Mix until melted and refrigerate for 45 minutes. Place on a platter and let your guests dip away
With a small scooper or spoon, place little balls on parchment paper. They don’t need to be perfectly shaped, as truffles are usually not exactly round.
