Chocolate Coffee Truffles
A perfect pick-me-up afternoon treat or a delicious way to enjoy coffee and dessert! This simple recipe can be tailored to your tastes. Want dark chocolate? Sounds great. Need a little more oomph of espresso? You got it. Chef Michael shows you how to rule the dessert game with his chocolate coffee truffles on Cooking Creations.
5 oz. Milk
1 Tbsp. Ground Coffee (from decaf to heavy espresso, it’s up to you)
8 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate (chips are best for melting)
1.5 oz. Butter cut into pieces
Cocoa Powder for rolling
1.) Over medium heat bring coffee and milk to a boil. Be sure to keep an eye on the milk and stir frequently to keep from burning. Once at a boil, remove from heat and let steep for 5 minutes.
2.) In a medium bowl gather chocolate and butter.
3.) Strain coffee and milk mixture and pour liquid over chocolate and butter while still hot.
4.) Mix ingredients until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until mixture hardens, approximately two hours.
5.) Using a small scoop, portion out the mixture into small balls.
6.) Roll in cocoa power, knocking off any excess cocoa.
7.) Place on your favorite serving dish and enjoy
Want a thicker and more mousse style truffle? Substitute heavy cream for the milk. Chocolate coffee truffles are so good they won’t last long. But if they do, it is best to store them in an airtight container in the fridge. Share your photos by using #FourWindsCasino or emailing photos to email@example.com.
