The minute I get up, my Keurig pours me a hefty cup of coffee, I drink that standing up in the kitchen while making the kid’s breakfast and packing lunches. Then, when my boys have their quiet time I pour another cup and drink that a little more peacefully while sitting on the couch catching up on emails. But what about those times when I need a little pick me up later in the day? Well, I got you coffee (and dessert) lovers covered with these decadent Homemade Coffee Truffles.
I’ve lived in Seattle for almost my entire life, except for when I attended college in Arizona. People always joke about how people from Seattle LOVE coffee and I can honestly say that I’m pretty sure we drink more coffee here than anywhere else. There is a coffee shop or coffee stand every mile, and sometimes even across the street from one another. Needless to say, we know our coffee.
Since we go through so much coffee in our home, I’m always on the lookout for the best deals on K-cups. I found this Seattle’s Best Coffee®House Blend and Signature Blend at a great low price at my local Walmart. Great taste for less, it’s like a free upgrade!

My little coffee station at home is my happy place every morning. Just grab a K-cup, and wait for that delicious smell to fill the kitchen. I’m going with a Signature Blend these days, good thing Seattle’s Best Coffee® has such a variety because I change my mind a lot!
Now let’s dive into these Coffee Truffles. Now that you have a cup poured just for you while you are baking, gather a few easy ingredients like semi-sweet chocolate chips, raw sugar, coconut milk and make another small cup of coffee to use in the recipe!
Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 45 seconds. Stir, and repeat one more time. Whisk chocolate together until smooth.
Then, pour in the coffee, coconut milk and sugar directly into the chocolate.
Whisk until smooth.
Line a 9X9 glass pan with foil, pour in the mixture and sprinkle with a little sea salt.
Place the pan in the refrigerator for 3-5 hours! (even better if overnight)
Use a small scoop to form the chocolate into little balls. The chocolate is still a little gooey, you may want to freeze the pan for just a little bit to help the consistency while dipping them into the chocolate.
Melt the white chocolate chips until they are creamy. Then, place a fudge ball directly into the bowl. This part can be a little messy, a toothpick worked ok, I also used a spoon to cover the ball evenly.
Not Pictured: Place the chocolate truffles directly onto WAX PAPER and sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles. Keep on here until hardened! This way you can easily peel them off without the chocolate cracking.
These are filled delicious salty and sweet flavors paired with the smooth taste of coffee filling.
Love a good gooey filling filled with flavor!

Yummy!!! I just love truffles, and yours look pretty easy to make!
these look yummy! I definitely want to give them a try. If stored in airtight container, how long do you think they would be good for?
