Chocolate Coffee Truffles

Mocha Truffle Candy

by Megan on December 29, 2010

My girlfriend asked me if I could make a dozen coffee truffles for her.

She wanted to give them to her father for Christmas. Of course, I was more than happy to oblige.  I had a recipe that used cream cheese and it sounded easy yet delicious. I mean, how can you wrong with chocolate and cream cheese?

Coffee Truffles for Christmas
These were the best truffles, and the easiest ones, I have ever made!

I’m  thinking I need to make more for New Years’ Eve!

Paired with a glass of champagne at midnight?

Doesn’t that sound  decadent?

EASY: just melting chocolate and cream cheese together, then stir in the coffee. They were not to heavy on the coffee flavoring, but they had just enough! You can either dip them in melted chocolate or roll them in Cocoa power.

I did both.

I liked them better rolled in the cocoa. My daughter, of course, liked them better dipped in chocolate.

I packaged up a half dozen of each kind and  I also added in a few chocolate covered coffee beans to make more of a variety pack. Packaged in a pretty box, they were all ready to be delivered.

These Chocolate Coffee Truffles made one daddy,very happy !

I made these, I used instant espresso instead of the instant coffee granules. They were a huge hit! My husband wants me to make some to take to work :)

I was wondering about how many truffles this recipe yields and if they can be frozen. I’m really excited to make them as part of cookie trays for Christmas this year, and I’m just wondering if I could make them ahead.

18 Megan December 29, 2011 at 8:56 pm

Yes, these can be made ahead of time. I think I got about 30 truffles but it depends on how big the truffles are.

19 Mari gold December 30, 2011 at 4:36 pm

These look great, can they be frozen?

20 Mari gold December 30, 2011 at 4:37 pm

Can these be frozen?

21 Megan January 6, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Yes, they can be frozen!

22 Megan February 6, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Yes, they can be frozen. I rolled them in the cocoa after they defrosted!
