Twilight Dark Chocolate Truffles

Twilight Dark Chocolate Truffles

Mykaela 10

"My Dad made this recipe up one evening to surprise my Mom. They are huge fans of dark chocolate. Add any extra little add-ins that you want! (e.g. coffee grounds, mint extract, cinnamon, white chocolate coating, etc.) Deliciously dark and fudgy! Enjoy with family on holidays, or just any time you have a major dark chocolate craving! Rolling in coating of choice before refrigerating, if desired."

  1. Combine the heavy cream, butter, baking chocolate, chocolate chips, and espresso powder in a saucepan over medium heat; stirring constantly, cook until the chocolate has melted into a smooth and thick mixture. Remove from heat. Pour into a bowl and chill in refrigerator until the mixture hardens, about 1 hour
  2. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Scoop small balls of the chocolate mixture onto the waxed paper. Store in refrigerator until the balls harden completely. Store in a cool, dry place.



I forgot to add a step! After it is taken off the stove, it needs to cool in the fridge/freezer until it is just hard enough to scoop out with a small cookie scoop. It should still be "sticky" ...

Simply YUMMY! I don't bother rolling it into a ball, just pour it into an aluminum pan 1" deep and cut into bite size squares.

Amazing! These truffles are super rich and oh so delicious. I did add the espresso powder, it gave these a wonderful flavor and really complemented the chocolate. I rolled these in crushed pecan...

5 Star taste but 2 Star for prep. These taste AMAZING. I used Ghirardelli chocolate and dark roast coffee. Mine never got to a workable consistency. When I chilled the mix the outer layer hard...

I made these today for a party. They were so simple to make and really good! I stuck some in the freezer for a later craving!

Flavor is excellent. Fairly time consuming. I dipped them in melted dark chocolate after chilling. Yum.

Yum! I made these without the espresso powder, and they were delicious. I did modify the preparation, but not the ingredients. I put all of the ingredients in a large pyrex measuring cup and ...

My sisters and I made this for my mom on Mother's Day- it was her favorite part of the meal. We let it refrigerate over night before we scooped it into balls that morning; it worked better than ...
