Twilight Dark Chocolate Truffles

Rated as 4.81 out of 5 Stars

"My Dad made this recipe up one evening to surprise my Mom. They are huge fans of dark chocolate. Add any extra little add-ins that you want! (e.g. coffee grounds, mint extract, cinnamon, white chocolate coating, etc.) Deliciously dark and fudgy! Enjoy with family on holidays, or just any time you have a major dark chocolate craving! Rolling in coating of choice before refrigerating, if desired."

Amazing! These truffles are super rich and oh so delicious. I did add the espresso powder, it gave these a wonderful flavor and really complemented the chocolate. I rolled these in crushed pecan...

5 Star taste but 2 Star for prep. These taste AMAZING. I used Ghirardelli chocolate and dark roast coffee. Mine never got to a workable consistency. When I chilled the mix the outer layer hard...

Flavor is excellent. Fairly time consuming. I dipped them in melted dark chocolate after chilling. Yum.

I made these today for a party. They were so simple to make and really good! I stuck some in the freezer for a later craving!

My sisters and I made this for my mom on Mother's Day- it was her favorite part of the meal. We let it refrigerate over night before we scooped it into balls that morning; it worked better than ...
