Along with the now staple of my chocolate making repertoire -Champagne truffles- I made two kinds of coffee flavored truffles as a wedding present for my dear friends' special wedding week in Colorado. This was the first time I used transfer papers for the design on the top and they turned out quite well!

I also finally had sanding sugar to roll the Champagne truffles in and wow! what a difference, they looked much more classy with the larger sugar crystals.  Next time I plan to make truffles in the US, I have to remember to bring cocoa powder with me from Germany, because I couldn't find any dark enough for what I wanted.
