Coffee Truffles Recipe
Valentine's Day Recipes from Razzle Dazzle Recipes
1 1/4 pounds bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup strong coffee, freshly brewed
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tablespoons finely ground coffee
Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Heat on low. Stir occasionally
until chocolate melts.
At the same time, bring the heavy cream to a boil.
Remove from stove and mix the melted chocolate and cream. Whisk in
butter and brewed coffee. Stir thoroughly. Place mixture into a 10
by 7 or a 9 by 9-inch pan lined with waxed paper. Chill for 2 to 3
hours or until firm to the touch.
When the chocolate mixture is chilled, sift the cocoa with the
finely ground coffee on 16-inch waxed paper. Lift the chilled
mixture from the pan, cut into squares and roll in the cocoa-coffee
mixture. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator.
