Indulge in the Hungarian tradition with Túró Rudi, a delightful treat of sweetened cottage cheese encased in rich chocolate. Savor the perfect balance of creamy and chocolatey goodness, offering a taste of Hungary's beloved culinary heritage in every bite.Here's a recipe to make Túró Rudi, the iconic Hungarian chocolate-covered bars filled with sweetened cottage cheese:


For the cottage cheese filling:

  • 500g cottage cheese (Túró)
  • 2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla sugar

For the chocolate coating:

  • 300g dark chocolate (you can also use milk chocolate if preferred)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or coconut oil


1- Start by making the cottage cheese filling. Place the cottage cheese in a mixing bowl and mash it with a fork or blend it until smooth.

2- Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the cottage cheese. Mix well until the sugar is fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Adjust the sweetness according to your taste preference.

3- Line a baking sheet or tray with parchment paper. Using your hands, shape the cottage cheese mixture into small bars or logs. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and freeze them for about 30 minutes to firm up.

4- Once the cottage cheese bars are firm, prepare the chocolate coating. Break the chocolate into small pieces and place them in a heatproof bowl. Add vegetable oil or coconut oil to the bowl.

5- Melt the chocolate and oil together using a double boiler or by microwaving in short bursts, stirring in between until smooth and glossy.

6- Remove the cottage cheese bars from the freezer. Using a fork or toothpicks, dip each bar into the melted chocolate, ensuring they are fully coated. Tap off any excess chocolate and place them back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

7- Once all the bars are coated in chocolate, return them to the freezer for another 15-20 minutes to set the chocolate coating.

8- Once the chocolate coating is firm, remove the Túró Rudi from the freezer. They are now ready to be enjoyed!

9- Store any leftover Túró Rudi in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy these delicious chocolate-covered bars filled with sweetened cottage cheese as a tasty treat or dessert!
