Ice cube tray chocolate truffles made with white chocolate and dark chocolate

This was one of our first viral videos on social media. While the ice cube tray trend has passed, the recipe remains popular to this day! These ice cube tray chocolate truffles are smooth and creamy with crunchy fillings.

They’re perfect for snacks, dessert buffets, afternoon tea, DIY gifts and more. You only need a few ingredients to make them. So let’s get started!

What Kind of Ice Cube Tray Is Best?

There are several options to avoid sticking. The first is to use a rigid ice cube tray with curved corners (not angled corners). The second is to use a flexible silicone ice cube tray (usually a square shape).

The choice really depends on what you want your truffles to look like when they’re done.

How to Make Ice Cube Tray Chocolate Truffles

The chocolate maketh the truffle, so start with high-quality chocolate chips or baking chocolate such as Baker’s or Ghirardelli. We melted it in the microwave, but a double boiler on the stovetop works just as well.

Drizzle the melted chocolate into the ice cube tray to fill halfway. Sprinkle a few fillings on top and then cover with remaining chocolate to fill. It’s can be a messy job, but that will not affect the final truffles.

Ideas for Truffle Fillings

We used almond pieces, coconut flakes and pomegranate arils as fillings. Other choices include: pistachios, pecans, hazelnuts, caramel and peanut butter. If you use fresh fruits such as strawberries, the truffles should be consumed within one day.
