Ingredients of the chocolate coffee truffles

(Difficulty: Medium. 4 people. Duration: 45 minutes)

  • 250 gr. of chocolate.
  • 25 gr. of Rich tea biscuits.
  • One spoonful of instant coffee.
  • 1 spoonful of oil.
  • 4 units of strawberries.
  • A pinch of grated coconut.

How to make chocolate coffee truffles

In a pot, we will put water to boil, and in a container suitable for cooking, we will put the coffee to boil in a bain-marie. While we are going to add the chocolate little by little, mixing it with encircling movements.

Now, in your blender, we are going to crush our biscuits until they are pulverized.

(Note: You can crush your biscuits by placing them inside a zipper bag and using a glass or mallet to crush them).

We will mix the crushed Rich tea biscuits with the coffee and chocolate cream until it forms a uniform paste without removing the mixture from the fire. Let them rest until they reach a warmer temperature for handling.

Meanwhile, we will spread our hands with oil, and with the dough, we will start to make little balls, and in each one of them, we will add a strawberry or half a strawberry.

This step is already to your taste, but if you don’t have strawberries, you can use marshmallows or some seeds like almonds, peanuts or hazelnuts; this way, we give a crunchy touch to our chocolate and coffee truffles.

On a covered tray, we will take our truffles to the freezer, and after one (1) hour, they will be taken out of the freezer and sprinkled with cinnamon.

(Note: you can change the cinnamon for chocolate shavings, cocoa powder, grated coconut, nutmeg, among many other alternatives).

How to make the recipe for chocolate, coffee and orange truffles

We will start making the chocolate truffles by melting the chocolate with the butter in the microwave.

(Note: Be very careful with the time in the microwave, we recommend intervals of 15 seconds, stir, 15 seconds more and stir; follow these steps until you have a homogeneous mixture. But you can also choose to do this step in the kitchen in a bain-marie on low heat).

Now, in another pot, we will boil the cream with a teaspoon of soluble coffee; when it boils for the first time, we will take the mixture off the heat.

Mix everything well until there are no lumps left, and to this mixture, we will add the orange liqueur of your preference.

Pour this mixture into a cold container and leave it in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

After that time, we remove it from the freezer, and with our hands, we will form little balls that we will batter in chocolate showers, some of them in cocoa powder.

As the last step (optional), you can put your chocolate, coffee and orange truffles in a particular wrapper for truffles or chocolates and leave them in the freezer.

With these quantities, you will get about 28 truffles.

How to make chocolate truffles with decaffeinated coffee

In a pot or pan, melt the two types of chocolate over medium-low heat and mix well. When the chocolates have melted and mixed well, remove them from the heat.

Instead, we will heat the butter. Meanwhile, in the chocolate mixture pot, we will add 100 ml. of liquid cream, and we will mix everything until we get a chocolate cream.
