InspireDD by the latte and coffee flavors of Peppermint Mocha, Mocha and Caramel, the Dunkin’ Donuts Culinary Team developed this awesome no-bake recipe for Peppermint Mocha Latte Truffles.  These goodies are perfect for any gathering, and can also be put in boxes and given as gifts for those who deserve a little something sweet!

Preparation

  • Using a food processor, crush the graham crackers until they are finely crushed.
  • Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl, over a double boiler.  Stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Add the Peppermint Mocha Latte to the melted chocolate, stir to incorporate. 
  • Remove the chocolate mixture from the heat.  
  • Add the crushed graham cracker to the chocolate / latte mixture, stir well.  
  • Place the Truffle mixture into the refrigerator to cool slightly.  This allows the mixture to set, and will take approximately 30 minutes.
  • Once the Truffle mixture has set, form the truffles into small bite sized pieces using a melon baller or spoon.
  • Roll each truffle in the decorations / coating of your choice.  
  • Serve on a decorative plate or place in boxes to give as gifts. Enjoy!
