Cafe Au Lait Truffle


Home | Recipes | C

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz Milk chocolate
  • 4 oz White Chocolate
  • 2 tb Unsalted Butter; (room temperature)
  • 1 c Whipping cream
  • 1 tb Instant coffee
  • 1 lb White or Milk Chocolate for dipping
  • 1 tb Cocoa for decoration

Directions:

I was sending these to Virginia and thought maybe someone else on the list might enjoy seeing them, too. These truffles all come from the wonderful little book by Pam Williams and Rita Morin, "Oh Truffles by Au Chocolat." There is every imaginable type of delicious truffle - I really can't do it justice in the few recipes I've chosen to enter below.
 
I have made all of the following and they are simple to make, look like you paid a fortune for them and are usually inhaled by the lucky recipient (that is if the candy maker doesn't make fast work of them first!).
 
Scald cream in heavy saucepan. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Strain through sieve.
 
Add instant coffee to scalded cream. Stir to mix.
 
Carefully melt both chocolates together in a double boiler over hot water. Remove from heat.
 
With a whisk, beat butter into chocolate until smooth.
 
Vigorously beat cream/coffee mixture into chocolate/butter mixture until light and fluffy.
 
Chill until firm, approximately 2-4 hours.
 
Scrape spoon or melon-ball cutter across surface of mixture; quickly press with fingertips into 1-inch balls. Freeze well wrapped in plastic.
 
Suggested Decoration: Dip this truffle in melted white or milk chocoalte and dust with cocoa while chocolate is still wet.
 
Yield: 40 - 45 Truffles
