 Mocha Truffles
Nothing compares to the melt-in-your-mouth flavor of these truffles...or to the simplicity of the recipe. Whenever I make them for my family or friends, they're quickly devoured. No one has to know how easy they are to prepare! -Stacy Abell, Olathe, Kansas
66 ServingsPrep: 25 min. + chilling

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (12 ounces each) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 pound dark chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • White candy coating, optional

Directions

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth.
  • Beat in cream cheese. Dissolve coffee in water; add to cream cheese
  • and beat until smooth.
  • Chill until firm enough to shape. Shape into 1-in. balls and place on
  • waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 1-2 hours or until firm.
  • In a microwave, melt chocolate coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls
  • in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let
  • stand until set. Melt white coating and drizzle over truffles if
  • desired. Yield: about 5-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Dark, white or milk chocolate confectionery coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores. It is sometime labeled "almond bark" or "candy coating" and is often sold in bulk packages (1 to 1-1/2 pounds). It is the product used for dipping chocolate. A substitute for 6 ounces chocolate coating would be 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet, dark or white chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening melted together. Truffles can be frozen
