You just need a few ingredients to get started including heavy cream, butter, espresso powder and of course… chocolate to make a delicious ganache for truffles. Chill the ganache and use a 1-inch scoop (or your hands) to form small bite-size balls.

Then roll in unsweetened cocoa to coat and enjoy!

It’s that easy, but it can also get a little messy. The kind of messy you’ll want to make.

Chocolate Coffee Truffles

Makes 24 truffles

¾ cup heavy cream
2 tbsp. butter
4 tsp. espresso powder
10 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped finely
cocoa powder for coating

1. Heat cream, butter and espresso powder in a heavy saucepan stirring often. Turn off the heat just before it begins to boil and stir with a whisk.
2. Pour heated mixture over chopped chocolate and let sit for a minute. Then whisk together until the chocolate and cream are combined, melted and smooth.
3. Pour the chocolate ganache in a small baking pan. Cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes. Use a small scoop to form round balls of ganache and place on a wax paper covered baking sheet. Reshape by hand if needed and return to refrigerator to chill for several minutes.
4. Roll balls in cocoa powder to coat.
5. Keep refrigerated until serving.

These look so good. I was expecting a lot of ingredients and directions, but was pleasantly surprised that they should be very manageable to make with my hectic, crazy schedule.
