But, they are super rich, so resist the urge to make them large. They should be little bites, tiny in size, but mighty in yumminess. Also, if you’re a coffee lover, I’d recommend going with 4 teaspoons of coffee. I left a range here because some people aren’t huge fans of coffee (what is wrong with those people!?!) 😉
Today I have a little something special… A recipe for Salted Caramel Coffee Truffles.
A little while ago I was contacted by the Don Tomas Coffee Company. They wanted to give me some coffee to review and to giveaway! Well, you know how I LOVE coffee! So, of course, I was in! And, I love to share coffee! So I was doubly in!
They have a cool company story too… “We not only grow and roast coffee, we are also known for our thriving community in Nicaragua. Tomas family farm supports the community by providing schools for our children, health care for our families, and steady employment in an otherwise uncertain environment. Generations have worked and lived on our farm perfecting the science behind growing the highest quality, shade grown, 100% handpicked Arabica coffee.”
I loved the coffee too! I went with the Light Roast Ground; it’s smooth, well-balanced, and has a nice finish. It’s super yummy for a morning cup ‘o joe! And, another thing I like about their coffee is the fact that it isn’t expensive. Check them out on their website and on Amazon.com.
These candies were made with a scoop. And, honestly, each one of these truffles will serve two people. Dan and I split one and we were very happy!
The coconut oil is for a little bit of shine in the truffle and a little bit of softness. So, if you don’t have any coconut oil, no worries, you can leave it out or replace it with butter or vegetable shortening.
And, as for the Salted Caramel Sauce, I highly recommend you make your own. It’s amazing! I make this sauce for special events; it’s delish over ice cream. ‘Course, I like to eat it plain with a spoon too, that’s why I don’t make it too often! But, if you’d prefer to buy a jar from the store for ease, that’ll work too. Just get a good quality one.
These candies were made in the candy mold. It makes it really easy to get the right size. After filling the molds, just tap the mold tray on the counter a bunch of times to get the air bubbles out of the candies.

Salted Caramel Coffee Truffles Recipe
Salted Caramel Coffee Truffles
- Place chocolate in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Melt chocolate in the microwave on medium-high for in 30-second increments, stirring between each. Once chocolate is melted, stir in ground coffee, caramel, and coconut oil.
- Carefully spoon into small candy molds. Tap mold on a solid surface like a counter top a few times to release the air bubbles from the truffles. Place in fridge until solid and firmed.
- If you don’t have a candy mold, these may be done with a scoop or a spoon. Scoop or spoon out a small amount and place the truffle onto a Silpat or a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Drizzle a small amount of salted caramel sauce over each truffle for serving, if desired. You could even sprinkle some salt over the top for serving.
