Mocha Truffles


  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered instant coffee
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chopped nuts or semisweet baking chocolate, grated


  1. In small saucepan combine whipping cream, sugar, butter and instant coffee; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, just until mixture boils.
  2. Remove from heat; immediately add chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Add vanilla extract. Pour into small bowl; chill, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to set. Cover; chill several hours or overnight to allow mixture to ripen and harden.
  3. Form small amounts of mixture into 1/2-inch balls, working quickly to prevent melting; roll in nuts or chocolate.
  4. Cover; store in refrigerator.
  5. Serve cold.

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen truffles.
