These chocolate tahini truffles take just 10 minutes to make — but they will need an hour in the freezer to firm up, so be sure to make the recipe before dinner.

  • Step 1

    Line a 9 x 5 inch deep baking dish with parchment paper.

  • Step 2

    Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in a microwave. Pour the tahini into the melted chocolate and stir well to combine. Pour the mixture into the bottom of the parchment paper-lined baking dish. Transfer to a freezer and freeze for at least 1 hour. 

  • Step 3

    Flip the baking dish upside down and tap the dish to release the chocolate from the dish. Discard the parchment paper. Cut the chocolate into 2 inch x 1 inch rectangles and dip each truffle into the cocoa powder to coat evenly.

  • Step 4

    Serve the truffles immediately.

Make Ahead: Store the coated truffles in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month.
