  • 3 cups Milk Chocolate Ghirardelli Morsels
  • 2/3 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Espresso Powder
  • 1/2 cup Caramel Bits

  1. In a double boiler (or a glass bowl over a boiling pot of water), heat cream until warm. Add butter until melted. Add espresso powder and Ghirardelli chocolate morsels. Stir until smooth. Add caramel bits, stirring until melted (this may take several minutes).

  3. Scoop filling into 1 tablespoon balls and drop onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Freeze for one hour.

  5. Dip each truffle on a toothpick into the melted chocolate, tapping the side of the bowl until the excess falls off. Drop onto the parchment paper and sprinkle immediately with sea salt. Repeat until finished.
  6. Store truffles in airtight container in refrigerator for up to two weeks. ENJOY.
