espresso truffles


I made these for my brother’s engagement party last weekend. Soooo goood. Though most of you know that I am a sucker for coffee and chocolate. How can you go wrong?

So rich, so good, and so excited for my brother!

  • 16 oz dark chocolate (chopped)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 shots freshly pulled espresso
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cocoa powder (for finishing)

Heat cream to a simmer. Pour chocolate into a heatproof bowl. Pour (heated) cream, espresso, and vanilla over chocolate, let sit a couple minutes. Stir to completely combine and silky. Pour into into a 8×8 pan, chill for 2 hours or until hard.

Roll chilled chocolate into teaspoon sized balls. Roll in cocoa powder. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
