Makes 27 truffles


1/4 cup Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate squares, chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
Additional powdered sugar, if desired


Line 8x4-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap.

In medium microwavable bowl, heat cranberry sauce on High 30 seconds or until melted. Whisk until smooth. Gradually whisk in cream, then chocolate. Heat on High 45 seconds to 1 minute; stir until smooth. Stir in cranberries.

Spread chocolate mixture evenly into prepared pan. Refrigerate 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours or until chocolate holds shape and is the consistency of play dough. Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together powdered sugar and cocoa.

Remove chocolate mixture from pan to cutting board. With sharp knife, cut into 9 rows by 3 rows.

Roll each piece of chocolate in cocoa mixture. Then roll with hands into balls. Place in individual paper liners. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar. Store covered in refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature at least 15 minutes before serving.

Variation: After rolling into balls, reroll in powdered sugar-cocoa mixture.

Recipe is yummy but needs work

Sabrina Watkins from Roswell, GA

I made mine using kroger brand chocolate. Should have used a higher quality. Also, mine never hardened on the counter. Had to put it in the fridge for a few hours so that it was firm enough to roll. Like others have said, it never got smooth in the pan. But, by golly, they were tasty! Very rich, though.

when i was on net looked up ''cranberry truffles'' and i thought this site looked interesting because it said cranberry and chocolate truffles i was sad to find there was not much sigh of cranberries. so sorry.

Mixture never got smooth. ....... Made double batch for Banquet Charity Event. How do you store? Do you individually wrap for service? Thanks, Linda

Never firmed up

2 Stars for not being able to form truffles due to soft consistency (but tastes delicious!). I used the "batter" to make the Outrageous Chocolate Cranberry Fudge Cake found on this website: 2 cups truffle mixture, 2 eggs, 2/3 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, bake as directed in recipe. Tasted like fudgy brownies and didn't have to "waste" the mixture!

A few tips

I make them is in a square dish, lined with wax paper, and chilled in the fridge. Sprinkle powdered sugar into foil baking cups. Put a cut truffle square in each. Remember that 9 oz of choc. chips is 1.5 cups of chips.
