Chocolate Truffles

By

Easy chocolate truffles are made with chocolate chips, coffee, vanilla, and cookie crumbs, along with nuts and other ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Preparation:

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.
