Coffee Truffles

Method

  • Heat the heavy cream and coffee granules in a small saucepan over medium heat until they come to a boil.
  • Place the chopped couverture in a medium bowl and pour the cream-coffee mixture over it.
  • Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water. Mix with a metal spoon or a spatula until the chocolate melts and is completely combined and smooth.
  • Line a 20x20 cm metallic baking pan with parchment paper. Cut a piece that is larger than the size of the pan. Allow the ends to hang over the sides of the pan. This will make it easier to remove the contents.
  • Pour the mixture into the pan and lightly hit the baking pan to make sure the mixture is completely spread in the pan.
  • Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, until the mixture becomes firm.
  • Remove the truffle from the pan and allow it to reach room temperature.
  • Cut into square pieces, dust with a generous amount of cocoa powder and serve.

Tip

Use a knife with a thin blade to cut the truffles. Clean off the blade on a wet towel and dry off on a dry towel in between cutting each piece. This way you will be sure that the pieces will come out clean and nicely cut.
