Turkish coffee chocolate truffle is the perfect melt in your mouth taste of rich Turkish coffee with dark chocolate truffle. The best part is you can make it at home with as little as 3 ingredients.
You can basically achieve success with 4 ingredients and 5 steps:
- Chocolate: You have to use bakers chocolate which is easily found in the baking aisle of any supermarket. Chop up into small pieces for best melting consistency
- Heavy cream: heavy cream. DO NOT substitute with low fat anything or half and half. It will not give the same consistency
- Turkish coffee: Pre covid, Pre civil war in syria, I was spoiled enough half family bring me coffee straight from Damascus. Nowadays I buy it from the local middle eastern supermarket. They also sell my preferred brand on Amazon.
- vanilla extract: Optional* but I think it adds a nice depth of flavor
I have been thinking up this truffle in my head for years. When I first got into the food industry years ago when I manufactured and sold my products, I worked with a local chocolatier that taught me all about the finest chocolate. We worked together and developed this Turkish coffee chocolate truffle. That chocolatier then had personal family situation that pulled him away from his work and required him to be more present with his family and the project kind of fizzled. I was always too intimidated by chocolate to even try it. On my own blog I had a guest chef that gave me his recipe of marzipan filled chocolate truffle and insisted they were so easy to make. Finally, I decided to give my Turkish coffee chocolate truffle a go and here we are. So easy and so delicious.
Follow these 5 steps and you’re golden:
- chop chocolate into fine pieces
- heat the heavy cream
- pour over the chocolate pieces and LET IT SIT THERE FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES
- Best to pour it into a flat sheet so it evenly cools down then cover up to the chocolate to avoid condensation, refridgerate
- Roll into ball shape and dust with cocoa powder
