Mocha Truffles

I’ve always been a huge fan of mocha flavor. I remember being a kid and there was a restaurant we’d go to occasionally that served this massive (like the whole family can share) piece of Mississippi Mud Pie…it was over the top amazing and it really was my first introduction to the world of coffee and chocolate flavor combo, aka mocha. 

Today I’m sharing a great no-bake treat that you can add right now into your holiday dessert planning. Mocha Truffles, are basically bites of chocolate coffee bliss.

They not only taste terrific but make a wonderful addition to cookie trays. I always like to add a little something that isn’t a cookie into my dessert platters.

Mocha Truffles are easy to make and only require a few ingredients. You can certainly give them more of a festive touch by simply adding a touch of sprinkles to the top when you add the sea salt. Nothing complicated, no hard to find ingredients. 

Be sure to factor in the refrigeration/freezer time when you are planning on making Mocha Truffles. You can start them early in the day and finish them later. In fact, the time in between is the perfect opportunity to whip up a batch of cookies or wrap some presents. 

Don’t forget gift-giving, pop a few Mocha Truffles into a cute container, pop some ribbon on it and you have a wonderful gift for teachers, neighbors, and co-workers too.
