Chile Mocha Truffles
These vegan friendly truffles are made with heavy cream (or coconut cream), rich semi-sweet chocolate, coffee liqueur, and cayenne pepper.
Attention all chocolate lovers! If you, like me, like a little ‘oomph’ in your chocolate, listen up! Recently, while gleefully sipping a Chile Mocha coffee drink, it occurred to me that this spiced, earthy cocoa would be fabulous as a truffle (the chocolate, not the mushroom). Suddenly, my chocolate obsessed brain was on a mission– a truffle mission. If you, like me, prefer your cocoa rich, dark, and a little bit spicy– this chocolate is for you! It’s delicious, it melts in your mouth, and is perfect for parties, date nights, or even groggy midnight snacks. I present to you– the Chile Mocha Truffle. These truffles are made from a spicy and decadent chocolate ganache, rolled into perfect little balls of happiness, and lightly dusted with spiced sugar, sweetened cocoa powder, or sesame seeds.
