Little sweets made with fondant, Truffles with Coffee are flavoured with liqueur. If you want the flavour of coffee but not the expense of buying a liqueur, use
1 teaspoon of instant coffee powder dissolved in
2 teaspoons of hot water instead.
8 oz. Fondant, warm
1 tablespoon coffee-flavoured liqueur
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 tablespoon finely chopped blanched almonds
1 oz. desiccated coconut
Place the fondant in a medium-sized mixing bowl and sprinkle over the liqueur, sugar and almonds. Using your fingers, work all the ingredients together until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Break off small pieces of the fondant mixture and roll them into 12 balls. Place the coconut on a plate and roll the balls in it to completely coat them, shaking off any excess. Place the truffles in a serving dish and serve.
