If you like how chocolate and caramel go together you will definitely love these caramel and chocolate truffles. Sweet, a bit salty, chocolaty and chewy, with a great flavor and a crispy texture coming from the cocoa nibs, quite hard not to get in love with them.

These amazing truffles are really easy to prepare and require few ingredients. The best part is that are an amazing dessert that can be prepared in advance and have it ready for holiday season or any other friend or family gathering.

I am not finding any caramel ingredient just the word "caramel color" in step one of the of the photos shows a plate of truffles some rolled in cocoa pwd the other rolled in perhaps ground almonds -or is it some other ingredient. Would love calcification so I can be successful in making these...Thanks

the caramel is made first.. by melting sugar until turns into caramel.. then you add chocolate... and so on.. so the caramel is composed with the mixture.. I only rolled them in cocoa powder and grated chocolate.. but feel free to roll them in ground almonds if you like best
