Chocolate and coffee is such an indulgent and delicious flavour combination, don’t you think?

That’s why I’ve upgraded my Easy Chocolate Truffles and thrown in some coffee. I bring you these totally irresistible Chocolate Coffee Truffles!

These truffles are rich and super creamy; they’re loaded with coffee flavour, and generously coated in even more chocolate.

Coffee lovers – you are gonna love these.

Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these truffles. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Chocolate: You can use milk, dark or semi-sweet chocolate here. Make sure to use the best quality chocolate that you enjoy eating on its own.
  • Double/heavy cream
  • Unsalted butter
  • Instant coffee granules OR powder: Be sure to use your favourite instant coffee – flavour is everything in this recipe!

For the coating:

  • Chocolate: Milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
  • Coconut oil: You can use unflavoured coconut oil if desired. This is only used to thin out the melted chocolate for coating the truffles.

How to make Chocolate Coffee Truffles

To make these truffles, simply start by adding the chocolate and heavy cream to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.

Add the butter and coffee granules and stir in until completely smooth and combined. Cover the bowl with clingfilm, and refrigerate until the chocolate is firm – I like to leave mine in the fridge overnight.

Once firm, roll the mixture into 1oz balls, and place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment or wax paper. Freeze the truffles for 30 minutes.

TIP: If the mixture starts to become too sticky/melty to roll, coat your hands with cocoa powder to make the process easier.

For the coating, add the chocolate and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.

Dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, place back onto the baking tray, and refrigerate until set. I drizzled my truffles with white chocolate – makes them look extra pretty!

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

Great recipe, can't wait to try it! Can I use regular coffee grounds or does it need to be instant?

I would stick with instant as I haven't tried using coffee grounds in this recipe.
