Toffee Espresso Chocolate Truffles
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love my coffee ❤
My day does not start without coffee no matter what 😛
I’ve been drinking Douwe Egberts for years now & it’s my favourite plain smooth instant coffee. I have always been disappointed in the past when trying flavour infused instant coffee however, a few months ago I came across Crumpets and Coffee– they were just all over Instagram and everyone was raving about them so I knew I had to try them out for myself!
I ordered an array of flavours, they have so many from Cuban Rum, to Double chocolate, to Mint chocolate (a personal favourite) a recently released Toffee which I instantly fell in love with when I tried it.
They also sell teas, chocolate and have recently released a new line of clothing too- be sure to check them out here 🙂
So an idea struck! Homemade Toffee flavoured Espresso truffles
& they are SO delicious!
A crispy chocolate shell with a creamy espresso toffee centre which is to die for…
PLUS they’re totally vegan as i’ve used a cashew ‘cream’ for the centre infused with the coffee 🙂
Ingredients (makes 10):
–40g Coconut Oil (I use LucyBee)
–30g Cacao Powder (I use Kaizen Living)
–10g Cashew Butter
–10g Sukrin Gold (or any sweetener/ sugar)
1.Melt down 30g of the Coconut oil either in the microwave or on the hob, add to it 25g of the cacao powder and about 8g of the Sukrin gold (or any sweetener of choice)
2.Fill the silicone chocolate moulds by approximately 1/3 with the chocolate then place the remaining mix to one side
3.Next, warm the remaining 10g coconut oil and dissolve the 5g of coffee, 5g cacao, approximately 4g sukrin gold and finally stir through the cashew butter (you may want to add more sweetener to taste here)
4. Use this mix to fill up the moulds by another 1/3 (so they should be 2/3 full)
5.Finally make up the remaining 1/3 with the chocolate mix you made earlier and pop them in the freezer for about 30 minutes
Remove, taste, fall in love 😛
then try not to eat them all at once (only joking, do what you want 😉 )
Simple, easy and delicious!
Hope you enjoy this recipe, i’d love to hear what you think of it!
