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?
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 !
