This hot cafe mocha truffles recipe is especially for coffee lovers!!!! If you are like me, who need a cup of coffee to jump-start the day after a late-night activity [crafting for me, for instance], this is the right recipe for you.
I have got the idea of making these Hot Cafe Mocha Truffles after stumbled upon this recipe [come with step by step photo as well]. And, if you want to make some for kids, you can make the Hot Chocolate Truffles version by using the original recipe.
I find it rather convenient to make different flavors of hot cafe mocha with these truffles. Make some with your favorite choice of flavors. Pick your truffle of the day, drop it into a glass of hot milk and stir, you will have your hot cafe mocha in no time.
Sipping my glass of hot mocha in hazelnut flavor while writing this recipe, yum yum!!!
