mocha_truffles_mixing

Scrape bowl and mix until color is uniform.

Mixture will resemble a thick frosting and you will want to refrigerate for at least an hour until firm enough to shape.  Form into balls.  Roll truffles in dark chocolate powder and arrange on your choice of serving plate.   Keep refrigerated.  Number of truffles depend on the size that you make your truffles.

Trinket’s Recipe for Mocha Truffles

You may have noticed that I used to have a page for Taylor’s favorite recipes.  These were recipes that my daughter loves to make or recipes that she created herself.  Right now the site is being remodeled so it’s not visible right now…but the first recipe she wanted to share is a mocha truffle recipe.  Which we make this every year for her teacher(s) as a thank you gift.  They’re very easy to make and always a really big hit. 🙂
