We Really Know How To ‘Treat’ Our Residents!

By Team Trilogy

Each year, the Dining Services teams at our campuses work together with Life Enrichment team members to make February 14th memorable for our residents. That’s because, at Trilogy, we love the people we serve, and what better way to show it than by making them homemade truffles from scratch on Valentine’s Day? Try out one of our most loved recipes below! 

Chocolate Truffles 

8 ounces best-quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

1/2 cup heavy cream

For assorted coatings, use items such as crushed peppermint candies, toasted sweetened shredded coconut, finely chopped pistachios or other nuts, and cocoa powder.


Place chocolate in a medium bowl. Bring cream to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, then pour over chocolate. Let sit 2 to 3 minutes then whisk until smooth. Refrigerate (uncovered) until somewhat firm (about 1 hour). Spoon mounds (2 level teaspoons each) of chocolate mixture onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Return to refrigerator 15 minutes, then, with your hands, roll mounds into balls. Place desired coatings in shallow bowls and roll balls in coatings, pressing in and covering completely. Return to baking sheet and chill until set (about 30 minutes).

We’ve loved seeing the looks on our residents’ faces as we have passed out these treats each year. Click here to see them for yourself!
