As the Autumnal Equinox passes and our days and nights begin to feel cooler and shorter, we got to thinking about flavors that are warm and comforting. We couldn’t think of two more warm and comforting flavors than coffee and chocolate. You know that feeling you get in the Fall when the day turns dark and you just want to curl up on the couch with a blanket and a tub of ice cream. FrozBroz has you covered – Peace Coffee Chocolate Truffle.
We start with Guatemalan Dark coffee beans roasted here in Minneapolis at our favorite Peace Coffee. Check them out if you haven’t already at www.peacecoffee.com. They are doing good things for coffee farmers and our community.
We infuse our cream with coffee using a french press.
Now let us make some truffles with Divine Dark Chocolate. Divine is a fair trade chocolate that is 45% owned by the farmers – and it’s delicious.
We make a nice ganache, let it cool, chop it up again, and toss in cocoa powder – truffles.
Here’s the final product for your couch consumption – Peace Coffee Cocoa Truffle.
