Caffe Latte Truffles


Creamy white chocolate transforms the flavor of coffee in a departure from traditional dark chocolate truffles. Use cinnamon, powdered sugar, or unsweetened cocoa to coat the ganache.

Bring to a boil:

  • 1/2 cup cream

Remove pan from heat and whisk in:

  • Contents of 2 instant coffee sticks (totaling 4 grams of instant coffee powder)

When the instant coffee is thoroughly dissolved, add:

  • 11 ounces white chocolate, in small pieces

Stir until the chocolate has melted completely, then cover pan and let sit at room temperature for 8 hours or overnight, after which time it should still be soft enough to be shaped. Use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out small portions and shape into balls. Roll each ball in a shallow dish to coat it with:

  • Powdered sugar, cinnamon, or unsweetened cocoa powder

Chill before serving. Makes 40 truffles.

Conversions: 1/2 cup cream = 120 ml, 11 ounces white chocolate = 300 g.
