Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 2-2/3 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 2-2/3 cups red, green or white candy coating disks

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 182 calories, 12 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 15 mg cholesterol, 63 mg sodium, 16 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, heat cream and butter over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of saucepan (mixture should reach a temperature of 180°). Remove from the heat; whisk in coffee granules.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt milk chocolate chips. Stir cream mixture into melted chocolate chips until blended. Cover and refrigerate truffle filling until firm, about 2 hours.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy disks. On a baking sheet, place 30 miniature paper or foil muffin liners. With a pastry brush, brush inside of each liner with melted candy coating. Refrigerate to harden. Apply a second layer of candy coating.
  4. Carefully peel liner away from chocolate; discard liner. Remove filling from refrigerator; stir. If mixture is too thick, microwave at 5-10 second intervals until soft enough to pipe. Spoon filling into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe stars or rosettes into truffle cups. Cover and refrigerate. Garnish with sprinkles just before serving. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
