Champagne Truffle Tips
How can you make champagne truffles your own?
Make these champagne truffles feel personal by decorating them in ways that match your special occasion, such as using your favorite sprinkles, drizzling them with melted, colorful candy melts, or rolling them in sanding sugar. Also, this particular champagne truffles recipe calls for semisweet chocolate, but you can substitute milk chocolate or dark chocolate if you like. Use dry champagne for a less sweet truffle, or use a sparkling riesling or moscato for a sweeter flavor. If you've got leftover champagne or wine, check out more of our recipes with wine

Can you make champagne truffles ahead of time?
Yes! Because this recipe uses heavy cream, the champagne truffles must be refrigerated. They'll keep nicely for up to 2 weeks if stored properly in a tightly sealed container. Note that you may see condensation form on the outside of the truffles when removed from the fridge, if your environment is warm.
