Not Too Sweet Coffee-Flavored Truffles

Not Too Sweet Coffee-Flavored Truffles

I recommend truffles with dark chocolate and low-fat cream to anyone who doesn't like sweets. The bittersweet flavors of these truffles are so irresistible. They're also easy to make.

Ingredients: to make in a 10 cm × 14 cm mold

3 bars of dark chocolate
165 g
Low-fat cream
90 ml
Instant coffee
2-3 teaspoons
2 teaspoons
Unsalted butter
15 g
Mizuame or honey
1-2 teaspoon
Cocoa powder
as needed


1. Break the chocolate bars along the cracks and melt in a 50℃ double boiler.
2. Warm the heavy cream, mizuame, and instant coffee in a pot. Turn the heat off when it's just about to boil.
3. Pour the mixture from Step 2 into the bowl from Step 1 and fold in using a rubber spatula. Melt the butter in room temperature, and mix well into the chocolate with the rum to finish.
4. Pour the chocolate into a mold lined with parchment paper. Chill in the fridge to set.
5. When set, remove the chocolate from the mold and cut into desired sizes. Sprinkle the cocoa powder using a tea strainer.
6. The butter and mizuame is to make the truffles more smooth. Please adjust the amount of mizuame to the sweetness of the chocolate bar. The mizuame itself is optional.
7. If you'd like a harder result, please reduce the amount of the heavy cream. Here's the cocoa powder that I used.
