Dark Chocolate Espresso Truffles
Dark Chocolate Espresso Truffles (The Nosher via JTA)
(The Nosher via JTA) -- Most of us need few excuses to make a batch of chocolate truffles, especially when coffee is involved. My take on chocolate espresso truffles combines a velvety chocolate base with just enough espresso flavor to give you your caffeine fix. The fact that this version is vegan, kosher for Passover and healthy (no added sugar!) is just icing on the cake.
I make these truffles with whatever nuts I have on hand (hazelnuts are to die for and make them taste like Nutella). Roll them in cocoa powder, unsweetened shredded coconut, shaved dark chocolate -- or all three!
