I gave this recipe to a friend and she made them for her party where they received good reviews. They’re a little different.

An easy recipe for chai flavored chocolate truffles
Serves: 30
Ingredients
  • Chocolate Chai Tea Truffles
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 Chai tea bag (regular or decaf)
  • 1 (12 oz) bag white morsels
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels or 12 oz semi-sweet or dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
Instructions
  1. Place cream in a microwave-safe glass measuring cup. Microwave 1 minute or just to boiling. Submerge tea bag in cream. With back of spoon, press tea bag firmly against sides of the cup to release flavor. Steep for 10 minutes, pressing bag halfway through and before removing.
  2. Place white morsels in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Pour chai flavored cream over white morsels and place bowl in microwave. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat until smooth.
  3. Place melted chai morsel mixture in refrigerator and chill for at least 3 hours.
  4. Using a spoon, scoop chai mixture out of the bowl and form little balls about ¾ inch. Set the little chai balls on a plate covered with waxed paper. Place in freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate morsels and vegetable shortening on high for 1 1/2 minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to stir. Stir and microwave for one minute more, stirring halfway through. Dip frozen chai balls in melted chocolate and refrigerate until chocolate sets.

funny…I have been on a Chai kick lately. Do you think these would freeze well? I’m trying to do as much work ahead of Christmas as I can this year!

Laurie, thanks for trying them

Lindsay, I am almost 100% sure they will freeze well.

Yum! This sounds like a terrific combination! What chai tea did you use?

Anna November 17, 2006 at 1:34 pm

I used Stash, but go with whatever you think is best.

This reminds me of going out to dinner with you and your friends after you won the bake-off!

Anna November 17, 2006 at 2:12 pm

Amy, my memory is bad. Did we drink chai tea?

Therese November 17, 2006 at 3:06 pm

Could I use a powdered Chai mix…or is the tea bag form? These sound great and I have a friend who LOVES Chai tea.
I will make these!
Did you see Lance?!! I still want him and Sheryl Crow to get back together!

Hi,Luv,luv,luv how you explain the rcipes your pics and the of all the recipes…AWESOME!!!
Thanks for sharing.

Therese, yes. Lance was there. Since the gym is new, they had him come in and give a speech on stage. He talked about the New York marathon and some other stuff. He also has a bar downtown called “Six”. As for the chai, I don’t think the chai tea powder would work because it has sugar in it. It might, but unless you want to be experimental, it’s probably better to just go with the tea bag.

Hello Kiky, thanks for the nice comment :). Of course, now I wish I had a picture of the chai tea truffle for you, but like I said, I haven’t made these in a while.

Great – a use for the Chai Tea taking up space in my pantry. I have all these ingredients to make these and just might add this to my holiday baking repetoire.
