How to Make Chocolate Coffee Truffles
- Put chopped chocolate and butter pieces in a bowl.
- Heat the cream in a pan until it just begins to simmer.
- Remove cream from heat and add the coffee granules. Stir until the granules are dissolved.
- Put it over the chocolate and butter. Cover the bowl for 5 minutes.
- Remove cover and stir mixture.
- Cover with plastic wrap, placing the plastic directly onto the surface, and transfer to the refrigerator to set for about 3 hours.
- Once set, remove from refrigerator and using a small cookie scoop, scoop out as many truffles as you can and place them onto a parchment paper.
- Transfer truffles back to the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then make roll them into balls.
- Since your heated hands will cause the truffles to soften up again, place them back into the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
- For Coating: Place chopped chocolate in a bowl and microwave in 30, stirring after each until completely melted and smooth.
- Repeat with the milk chocolate chips. Put into a ziplock bag or a squeeze bottle.
- Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and, working quickly, dip them into the melted chocolate.
- Use a spoon to coat the truffle, then use a large fork to pick it up and tap the excess off on the side of the bowl.
- Use a toothpick to gently slide the truffle off the fork and onto the baking sheet. Immediately drizzle with melted milk chocolate and top with coffee beans, if desired.
- Repeat with remaining truffles until they’re all coated, you’ll need to transfer the baking sheet back and forth from the refrigerator a few times to allow the truffles to harden again.
