Peppermint Mocha Truffles - Peppermint chocolate and just a hint of mocha

I have recently become completely and utterly obsessed with the Starbucks Skinny Peppermint Mocha latte. I honestly have a problem. I have to limit myself to one a week (okay, maybe two and one on the weekend). When my sister, Julie, and I were making desserts for Thanksgiving we decided to transform that Starbucks deliciousness to our very own original dessert – the Peppermint Mocha Truffle!

These Peppermint Mocha Truffles and the perfect no-bake dessert! The combination of chocolate, peppermint and the slightest hint of coffee is simply perfect (if I do say so myself). The best part is that they are really easy to make and can be prepared and frozen until needed – but I promise you, they won’t last long at all!!!

  1. They look amazing. Just a question: why does the recipe call for flour and baking soda? Never heard of adding baking soda or flour to truffles.
    Could you use almond or coconut flour?
    Thank you

      1. Thanks, Jennifer. I’m planning on making these for our Christmas office lunch… so excited! Starbucks peppermint mocha is my favorite holiday drink so I’m really looking forward to trying these. Merry Christmas!
