Deb's Mocha Truffles

Nothing compares to the melt-in-your-mouth flavor of these rich mocha truffles…or to the simplicity of the recipe. I serve them at Christmastime, Christmas-in-July (!), or any time I want to treat my chocolate-loving friends and family to a homemade confection that looks and tastes like a chocolate-shop specialty! 
I deliver these truffles to neighbors and newcomers, complete with A ChocolateLife devotion book, sharing God’s grace…and chocolate too!


DEB’S MOCHA TRUFFLES

Filling:
2 packages (12 ounces each) semisweet or milk chocolate morsels
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3 Tablespoons instant coffee or espresso granules dissolved in 2 teaspoons water

Coating:
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels
½ package (12 ounces) white/vanilla candy coating

Melt 2 packages semisweet morsels in microwave or double boiler. Add cream cheese and dissolved coffee or espresso; mix well. Chill until firm enough to shape. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Chill for 1-2 hours or until firm. Melt 1 package chocolate morsels and white candy coating in microwave or double boiler, stirring until smooth. Dip truffle-filling balls and place on waxed paper until firm. If desired, melt additional white candy coating and drizzle over truffles.
