Every chocolate lover knows that when it comes to sinfully sweet self-indulgence, there’s nothing that can beat out a chocolate truffle.

Whether you’re a fan of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or could go for both, the truffle is King of the candies. But, while they’re fun to indulge in, there are few who venture to make them on their own- until now.

Meet Nino.

This talented, young chocolatier in the making runs his own channel on YouTube called Nino’s Home, and just about everything he uploads skyrockets in views and new subscribers. Why? Because he hacks his way through the tastiest, and sometimes even most complicated, of recipes.

For everything he cooks up on his channel, he seems to find a magical way to simplify it! His most viral video to date is a perfect example of this, and his title says it all-

“Condensed Milk Chocolate Truffles Easy Recipe [2 Ingredients]”

Now, Nino isn’t the type to hype up a recipe, and this one really is just as easy as it sounds. As the title indicates, these decadent chocolate truffles require just two simple ingredients- cocoa powder and sweetened condensed milk.

More specifically, you’ll need:

  • Roughly 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk (or 8 1/2 oz., if you’re being precise)
  • Roughly 1/2 a cup of cocoa powder (or 3 1/2 oz.)

The first thing you’ll want to do is to heat your sweetened condensed milk over low-medium heat. You’ll heat it just until it starts to simmer and remove it from heat.

Pour the heated milk into a medium to large-sized mixing bowl.

Working quickly, before the milk cools, pour your cocoa powder into a sifter and place it over the milk.

Gently smack the side of the sifter with your hand or slightly shake back and forth to sift the powder into the milk.

Only sift about 1/3 of your cocoa powder into the milk.

Then, set the sifter with cocoa powder aside over a shallow dish while you move onto the next step.

Take your baking spatula and mix the sifted cocoa into the milk until it is thoroughly combined.

When you’re done mixing it should look something like this:

Once the cocoa is thoroughly incorporated into the milk, it’s time to repeat the process.

Sift another 1/3 of the cocoa powder into the chocolate mixture.

Setting the sifter aside again, use your spatula to cut the powder into the mixture and then fold it over itself, making sure all the powder gets mixed in.

Now, your chocolate batter should be thickening up a bit from the cocoa powder.

We’re assuming that you can already guess what the next step is, but for the sake of being thorough…

Sift the final 1/3 of your cocoa powder into the chocolate mixture.

Using the same technique as before, cut your powder into the chocolate mix and make sure it’s all incorporated and there are no chunks of powder still lingering in it.

After you’re done mixing it all in, your chocolate mixture should be nice and thick, as in the picture below.

Next, take a medium-sized, rectangular baking dish with deep walls and cover with plastic wrap.

Make sure the sheet of plastic is long enough to be pressed into the dish while covering all sides, and that there’s still enough length left to fold the remainder over the top.

Then, pour your batter into the dish and press it in evenly with your spatula.

Take the remaining length of plastic wrap and cover the top of your soon-to-be truffles.

Press down around all the edges, making sure that it’s completely sealed.

Now for the hard part- pop your truffle batter into the fridge for a full 2 hours.

After two hours have passed, pull your mixture out of the fridge and turn out onto a surface dusted with cocoa powder.

Using a sharp knife, gently cut your truffle mixture evenly into squares.

As you make each cut, the truffles will want to stick to the edge of your knife. Gently press the truffles as they do while twisting your knife in the opposite direction.

This will not only unstick your truffles, but it will also leave a perfect, thin line of space between each row, which is important for the next step.

After you’ve got your truffles cut, pull your sifter back out and dust them with cocoa, making sure each one is completely covered.

Now, pick up each square and gently shape them so that they each have beautifully rounded edges.

Add more cocoa to the sides if necessary to keep them from being sticky to the touch. When you’re finished, you should have this heavenly sight before you…
