So, since making my Drunk Breakup Trifle, I’ve basically been eating something chocolate-based for every meal. I’m sure I will return to eating actual food at some point. In the meantime, just enjoy all the chocolatey dessert recipes.
Breakup or no, this dessert is a must try for chocolate lovers. It combines two of the best chocolate desserts, truffles and brownies. When served warm, the brownies are more fluffy and cake-like. When chilled, they become very dense and fudgy. They are 100% delicious either way.
P.S. You’ll need about two regular size bags, or one giant-size bag as linked in the recipe below, of Lindor milk chocolate truffles. Those are the ones that come in the red bag. I haven’t tested the recipe with other flavors or brands of truffle candies. I assume the results would be comparable and yummy, as long as they had a similar hard chocolate coating and creamy chocolate center. If anyone switches things up with this recipe please let me know how it turns out.
Also helpful for breakups and general day-to-day life… new stuffed animals. That sing and hold blinking skulls.
