My love for dark cocoa butter continues to grow with awesome projects like this one. These adorable little body truffles look just like dessert, feel great on the skin, and require just 2 ingredients and the ability to melt chocolate (which I have been able to do since the age of 6 by accidentally leaving Aero bars in my pocket after Halloween, haha).
Because you need to let each layer harden before pouring the next one, these do take a bit of time, but it’s mostly down time. The final truffles make fantastic Valentine’s Day gifts (or April Fools pranks, I suppose, but it seems a shame to waste such beautiful cocoa butter).
I used a great set of silicone chocolate molds I got as a Christmas gift a few years ago for these. If you don’t have the moulds, you can use an ice cube tray instead, though the results won’t be as edible-looking.
Oreo Body Truffles
Start with filling the bottom third of the molds with dark cocoa butter. Let solidify.
Fill the next third of the molds with white cocoa butter. Let solidify.
Top off with more dark cocoa butter. Let solidify.
Remove the truffles from the mold. To use, glide them over the skin. They melt at 34°C, so keep them out of hot sun.
The amount of cocoa butter you’ll need is dependent on the size of mold you use and how many truffles you want to make. I ended up melting more than I needed and pouring the extras into little measuring cups & spoons to set up. Once it had solidified I just put my wee blobs back in the bucket with the rest of the cocoa butter.
