  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz bitter sweet chocolate
  • 4 oz semi sweet chocolate
  • 1 1/2 ounces Grand Marnier
  • 1 tablespoon prepared coffee
  • 1/2 vanilla extract


  • Heat the heavy cream just under boiling, it will boil quickly so put it to simmer until it’s hot.
  • Chop the chocolate and place in a glass bowl. Pour the hot heavy cream over the chocolate to melt the chunks.
  • Add the vanilla, hot coffee and Grand Marnier
  • Mix until melted and refrigerate for 45 minutes. Place on a platter and let your guests dip away
  • With a small scooper or spoon, place little balls on parchment paper. They don’t need to be perfectly shaped, as truffles are usually not exactly round.
