Most of the time when I am on a baking marathon, I get to have some left overs of different pastries especially the fudgy chocolate brownies. When this happens I have the option of re-selling the left over pieces, but a few times I reuse the brownies for either a topping on donuts of even to make a chocolate donut batter.

This time round, I decided to settle with truffles using some of the left over brownies while incorporating a few other ingredients to it. Its a very quick and easy recipe, so stay tuned.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Prep time: 5 mins  Chill time: 5 mins  Total time: 10 mins

Yields: 16 truffles

Serves: 5 pax

Main Ingredients:

  • 4 pieces of leftover chocolate brownies
  • 112 g of bitter sweet dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup of Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener
  • 1/4 cup of crushed nuts ( cashews + pistachios)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Lemon (Yellow) Zest

Important tools:

  • Rubber spatula
  • Large mixing bowls
  • Board
  • Fridge
  • Food processor / OR/ Blender
  • Microwave / OR/ Double boiler


Step 1: Prep the brownies –  First cut them into pieces, then crumble them using either a food processor or a blender. Place the crumbs into a bowl. Set it aside.

Step 2: Prep the chocolate – over a double boiler -( this is the method I prefer in melting chocolate) you can always heat it over a microwave with 30 seconds in between until all smooth.

Step 3: Mix the chocolate dough – add in the melted chocolate to the brownie crumble mix + cayenne + lemon zest, and mix everything well.

Step 4: Shape them into balls – Depending on the size you want, scoop a portion and with the help of both your palms, roll them out to a smooth ball. The consistency will be sticky, don’t you worry. Place them on a plate or a board with an inch space away from each other.

Step 5: Chill for 5 mins – They should be semi – hard, but not too hard and a little bit sticky.

Step 6: Coat them – Using a shallow dish, add the crushed mixed nuts + the monkfruit sweetener. Combine the two and start coating each of the truffles.

Step 7: Serve and enjoy. – You can basically taste the tartness from the lemons zest + the punch of chili at the back of your throat. Its the perfect combination to your palate.
