Easy Coffee Chocolate Truffles


  • 220g heavy cream (at least 30% fat)
  • 6g instant coffee powder
  • 300g chocolate (55% to 65% cocoa, or dark chocolate as preferred)
  • 75g unsalted butter


  1. Prepare Your Ingredients: Start by finely chopping the chocolate to ensure it melts evenly. Transfer the chopped chocolate into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Infuse the Cream: Pour the heavy cream into a saucepan and warm it over medium heat until it’s just about to simmer. Avoid boiling. Stir in the instant coffee powder until fully dissolved, infusing the cream with a rich coffee flavor.
  3. Make the Ganache: Once the coffee cream is hot and infused, pour it over the chopped chocolate in the bowl. Allow it to rest for 1-2 minutes to let the chocolate soften. Then, stir gently with a spatula or whisk until the mixture becomes smooth and the chocolate has completely melted.
  4. Incorporate the Butter: Add the unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, to the chocolate mixture. Stir smoothly until the butter is fully melted and integrated into the ganache, giving it a glossy and smooth texture.
  5. Chill the Mixture: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the ganache for about 2 hours, or until it’s firm enough to shape. The ganache should be malleable but not too soft.
  6. Shape the Truffles: Once chilled, use a melon baller or a small spoon to scoop out portions of the ganache. Shape each portion by rolling them between your hands into spherical forms. If the ganache begins to soften too much, chill it for a bit longer.
  7. Finishing Touches: Roll your truffles in a coating of your choice to finish them. Cocoa powder, finely chopped nuts, or even espresso powder make excellent coatings that complement the coffee flavor.
  8. Serving and Storage: Place the finished truffles on a parchment-lined tray. You can indulge in them right away or keep them in a sealed container in the fridge for later enjoyment. Let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving to enhance their flavors.

Enjoy crafting these exquisite Coffee Chocolate Truffles, a treat that promises to delight with its rich flavors and silky texture. Perfect for gifting or indulging in a luxurious treat!
