Homemade: Chocolate Truffles

Filed under: Uncategorized — by moneyconsciously @ 6:53 am

Retail: Chocolate truffles cost approximately $1-$2 per piece, sometimes more (especially if gift-boxed).

Homemade: Yesterday I made over 40 truffles for approximately $8 in ingredients, i.e. $0.20 per piece. It took me an hour of hands-on time. The results were delicious!

I like truffles but rarely buy them because of their cost. However, I was happy to make them at 10-20% the retail price. Is there anything you would enjoy making at home that would also save you money?

  1. I am currently doing the same, but soon to be as my sole income. Saw your article while looking for pricing references for homemade truffles. Any suggestions? And love to see someone else enjoying these.
