Chocolate Truffle Brownies

The Best Brownie EVER 

(or so I have been told)

Every cook as their "go to" recipe.  The one that you always keep the ingredients on hand for and can bring to any gathering and it is a hit.  For me that recipe is this one.  You will always find a box of brownie mix and a bag of Lindt truffles in my pantry, so that I can throw these togethers when I needed something to give as a "Thank you" or bring to a party.  I am embarrassed when people as for my secret recipe.  Secret?  They come from boxed mix and a bag of candy, but for some reason these two things together along with a cupcake liner make a whole lot of deliciousness.

 My Mommalove and I came up with this when we were experimenting with brownies.   These use my absolutely favorite candy in the world, Lindt Truffles!  My favorite and the super dark ones, but I make them with all kinds.  The cheapest place to buy them is at Costco.  You can get a large bag for what you would pay for two small ones at the grocery store.  We tried just about every kind of chocolate candy in the middle, but the Lindt just blew the rest out of the water.

Hope you enjoy them and make them to give as a gift.  Who doesn't love a box of home baked amazingness? 


1 box of brownie mix (family sized box meant to make a 9x13 in pan)
ingredients that the box calls for (usually 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil, 1/4 cup water)
12 Lindt Lindor Truffles 
12 cupcake liners
Cupcake tin
small cookie scoop


1.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
2.  Mix the brownie mix according to directions 
3.  Place liners in cupcake tin
4.  Place one small scoop of batter into each liner 
5.  Place a truffle into the center of each cup
You can use whatever flavor truffle  you want.
Here I used a mix. 

6.  Top each cup with another scoop of batter. 

7.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until puffed in the center.  
remove from the oven and let cool.  They will sink in the center.

  1. OMG - GOTTA try these...always wondered what these "truffle brownies" were! You should send this to Lindt as a recipe idea - perhaps they'd use it on their website and send you a years' worth of truffles!!!!!!!
