The first time I made these coffee mousse truffles was for a rooftop party.
I decided to cut each truffle in half before serving, to show off the whipped coffee filling and also so guests could taste them and still save room for other desserts.
By the end of the night, it was clear that I should have brought a double batch. With a coffee cheesecake filling and dark chocolate shell, these truffles will not last long.
For Vegan Coffee Truffles: The truffle recipe works with vegan butter and coconut butter or store-bought or homemade Vegan Cream Cheese.
For Keto Coffee Truffles: Use powdered erythritol for the sweetener of choice to turn these into cream cheese coffee fat bombs. If dipping in chocolate, just be sure to use sugar free chocolate chips.
Mocha Truffles: Add 1 tablespoon of regular or Dutch cocoa powder to the cream cheese filling before blending everything together.
Coffee Mousse Truffles
- 4 oz cream cheese or coconut butter
- 2 tbsp butter, or additional coconut butter
- 3 tbsp powdered sugar or erythritol
- 1/2 tsp instant coffee
- optional melted chocolate for dipping
Bring the first two ingredients to room temperature if not already soft. Then combine all ingredients until smooth. Using a hand mixer yields the smoothest results by far, but stirring with a fork technically works and still tastes good. Spread into a container, or use a mini cookie scoop to place balls onto a parchment-lined plate. (If too soft, chill until firm enough to scoop.) Freeze until firm. If using a container, cut into bars or squares. If desired, dip in melted chocolate at this time. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
