Chocolate Truffle

The subtle coffee flavor of these rich, velvety candies blends well with the dark chocolate coating, and the white drizzle adds charm. Stacy Abell of Olathe, Kansas shared the recipe.

    Sorry, I gave a review on this recipe. This is not the one I made for my Granddaughters wedding. I made the mocha truffle recipe that makes 66 servings (5 1/2 doz.)

    I made 400 of these as favors at my Granddaughters wedding. This is an easy and wonderful recipe. Adding the white chocolate on top makes them look professional.
