Recipe for Chocolate Yoghurt Truffles 15 Flavour Ideas by Anisa Sabet for The Macadames.
Hey friend! Before I get to this bangin recipe, I was wondering if you’ve got your copy of my guide on “8 Ways To Make Your Photos More Moody”? If you haven’t, and you want to get your hands on it, please click here. As a Macadames community member, you’ll get access to loads of exclusive content written especially for YOU.
Do you want to know how to make homemade chocolate truffles with nothing but chocolate, yoghurt, maple syrup, a bit of cocao & whatever flavour options you have lying around?
Yeah, me too. If you’re anything like me, having ready-to-go, easy snacks are the key to me being a girl boss (this means doing some work, maybe washing my hair + being able to see the floor through toys/washing strewn about). Between wrangling a toddler, working from home, maintaining personal hygiene (boring!) and trying to keep some level of a social life, I don’t want to be scrounging around the cupboard like a junkie trying to find old boxes of chocolates / stale biscuits (we’ve ALL been there!) when I need a pick-me-up.
That’s where these chocolate yoghurt truffles come in. You simply melt chocolate, mix with yoghurt, maple syrup + desired flavour addition, freeze, roll, coat and BOOM! You’ve got a fortnight’s worth (a few days for some) of choccie treats.
You literally can’t f*ck these up, so what are you waiting for?
- Mint (1 teaspoon mint extract)
- Orange (1-2 tablespoons fine orange rind, 1 tablespoon orange juice)
- Raspberry (1/4 cup freeze dried raspberries)
- Lime (1-2 tablespoons fine lime rind, 1 tablespoon lime juice)
- Orange Blossom (1 teaspoon orange blossom water)
- Lavender (1/2 – 1 teaspoon lavender extract)
- Marshmallow (1/4 cup marshmallows, very finely chopped)
- Apricot (1/4 cup dried apricots, very finely chopped)
- Espresso (2 shots fresh espresso)
- Hazelnut (1/4 cup roughly chopped toasted hazelnuts with skins removed + 1 tablespoon Frangelico)
- Honeycomb (1/4 cup honeycomb, roughly crumbled)
- Boozy Orange (1-2 tablespoons fine orange rind, 1 tablespoon Contrieu)
- Rum (1-2 tablespoons rum)
- Chilli (1/2 teaspoon chilli oil)
- Coconut (1 teaspoon coconut extract)
- Cherry-Coconut (1/4 cup finely chopped glazed cherries + 1/4 cup shredded coconut)

Recipe adapted from The Kitchen McCabe.
Ingredients (makes 18):
- 250g dark chocolate
- 1/3 cup greek yoghurt
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- Flavouring (see above)
- Cacao powder for rolling
1. Melt chocolate in a glass bowl sitting on top of a saucepan of boiling water.
2. Mix yoghurt and maple syrup in a bowl. Pour in melted chocolate and mix until well combined. Fold flavouring through. Pop bowl into the freezer and allow to set for 1 hour.
3. Use a spoon to scoop out balls, coat in cacao, roll between your hands, coat a second time and pop into a freezer-safe container. Repeat until all the mixture is finished. Leave in the fridge / freezer (I prefer freezer).
Storage: truffles will keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.
