Wait until they taste these mocha truffles! Everybody will think you spent a fortune at a fancy candy shop, so wait until they hear that you made 'em. Why, you'll be elected president of the local chocoholics' fan club.
What You'll Need
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
- 3/4 cup (4 ½ ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup ground almonds
- 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
What to Do
In a medium saucepan, combine water and coffee granules over medium heat, stirring until coffee granules dissolve. Add chocolate and stir until melted. Remove from heat and stir in almonds and 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar until firm.
- Shape into 2 dozen 1-inch balls then roll in remaining 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar. Place on a baking sheet and chill 10 minutes, or until firm. Serve, or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
To fancy it up, coat some of the truffles with cocoa and others with sprinkles or colored sugars. That adds a variety of color and flavor to them.
