Chocolate Truffles

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup finely crushed chocolate cookie crumbs
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped blanched almonds or macadamia nuts
chocolate jimmies, finely chopped almonds or macadamia, or more cookie crumbs for coating

In top of double boiler over hot water, combine chocolate chips, coffee granules, water, corn syrup, and vanilla. Stirring frequently, heat until chocolate is melted.

Beat with electric hand-held mixer or whisk until smooth; remove from heat.

Stir in the cookie crumbs, powdered sugar, and nuts. Mix until well blended; let stand for about 10 minutes, until cool enough to handle.

Shape mixture into small balls; roll in chocolate jimmies, finely chopped nuts, or cookie crumbs.

Place truffles on waxed paper; cover loosely and chill overnight. Store in a tightly covered container.

Makes about 3 to 4 dozen chocolate truffles
