Now that you know why you’ll love this chocolate coffee truffles recipe let’s move on to the interesting part, making your own truffles! The condition of success is in following the instructions carefully.


  • Copha – 4 cups
  • Chocolate chips, dark and semi-sweet – 16 ounces each
  • Heavy cream, divided into 1 cup and ¼ cup
  • Instant coffee powder – 2 tbsp
  • Icing sugar – 1 cup
  • Vanilla essence – 2 tsp
  • Lindt chocolate, chopped – 8 ounces

Step 1:

Take a small saucepan and heat over low flame. Add in Copha and stir until it melts completely. Once melted, transfer it to a large mixing bowl.

Step 2:

In the same saucepan, heat 1 cup of heavy cream over low heat. Add the instant coffee powder to heavy cream and mix well.

Step 3:

In a separate bowl, sift icing sugar and add vanilla essence to it. Pour half of this mixture into the melted copha bowl.

Step 4:

Mix hot coffee cream with 16 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips together in another bowl until the chips melt properly.

Step 5:

Combine heavy cream mixture with copha bowl along with chocolate chips once mixed well. When everything is combined appropriately, add the remaining sifted sugar mixture into it and mix well again until everything is smooth.

Step 6:

Refrigerate the mixture for at least two hours or overnight (if possible) until it gets thick or firm enough to form balls.

Step 7:

Begin shaping the truffles as soon as you take them out of the refrigerator. Divide the mixture into small portions (~25g) to make small balls. Roll the balls in cocoa powder or instant coffee powder.

Step 8:

Melt the remaining 16 oz of dark chocolate in a double boiler. Dip each truffle in melted chocolate until fully coated and place them on a tray lined with parchment paper.

Step 9:

Decorate the truffles with melted white chocolate or chopped dark chocolate to make them stand out.

Now that you have finished making these amazing coffee truffles, get ready to treat yourself or someone you love to a delicious and creamy chocolate dessert!

Once you have made these delightful chocolate coffee truffles, you might be wondering about how to store them. The good news is that they can last for several weeks if stored properly. It is best to store the truffles in an airtight container, and keep them refrigerated to preserve their freshness.

If you need to make these truffles in advance, it is handy to note that they can be frozen for up to three months. Just be sure to wrap them tightly and label them with the date and type of truffle.

If you want to reheat these truffles, it’s not really necessary. However, if you like your truffles slightly melted or warmed in the microwave, I suggest heating them on medium-low for only a few seconds so they don’t lose their shape or creaminess. If I’m feeling fancy, I will sprinkle some cocoa powder over them before reheating.

These chocolate coffee truffles are perfect for making ahead of time or giving as gifts for friends or colleagues. Just be sure to store them in a cool place and consume within a reasonable timeframe for maximum enjoyment!

Are you excited to try making those delicious chocolate coffee truffles? Keep in mind these tips for perfect results!

1. Use high-quality chocolate: The taste of these truffles largely depends on the quality of chocolate you use. Therefore, choose good quality dark or semi-sweet chocolate for the best results.

2. Prepare the ingredients properly: Make sure to prepare all your ingredients before starting the recipe so that you can have a smooth and easy process. Measuring everything out and chopping the chocolate before you start is a good idea.

3. Begin with room temperature cream: Letting your cream sit at room temperature for a few minutes will help it heat up more evenly and make it less likely to curdle.

4. Don’t overheat the cream: Overheating dairy can cause it to separate, so be careful not to let the cream boil or get too hot when heating it up.

5. Use instant coffee powder: The recipe calls for instant coffee powder specifically, which dissolves quickly and is less bitter than regular coffee powder.

6. Experiment with flavors: While this recipe is already delicious as is, adding some cardamom or other spices could give them an even more unique twist.

7. Chill the truffles before shaping: After making the ganache mixture, chilling it helps it thicken up, making it easier to shape into truffles.

8. Use cocoa powder or chopped nuts for coating: Roll the truffles in either cocoa powder or chopped nuts for a nice finish that doesn’t detract from the flavor of the truffle itself.

By following these simple tips, you’ll be well on your way to perfecting these tasty chocolate coffee truffles!
