Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Mocha Truffles

Sunday, May 09, 2010

24 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3 T instant coffee granules
2 t water
1 pound chocolate confectionery coating or chocolate chips

Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler until smooth.  Add them to the cream cheese, coffee, and water.  Mix until smooth.  Chill until firm enough to shape.  Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a lined cookie sheet.  Chill until firm.  Melt the chocolate coating, dip balls in until coated completely, let harden on waxed paper.  You can also melt white chocolate and drizzle over coated truffles for decoration.  Should make at least 5 dozen.  They freeze well.  Just thaw in the refrigerator before serving.
