“This recipe is similar to other Truffle recipes, but differs in that it uses only SPLENDA to sweeten & low-fat ingredients. I've tried to match their appearance as close as possible to the true French Truffles that melt in your mouth. The amount of SPLENDA used is, of course to suit one's taste. The amount used here is not too sweet, yet enough to take the bitter bite out of the chocolate.”

  1. In a medium sized bowl, dissolve instant coffee in water.

  3. Add SPLENDA sweetener and blend well.
  4. In a separate small container, melt chocolate squares in microwave for 2 minutes on medium power or in a double boiler.
  5. Add to cream cheese mixture and blend well.
  6. Chill about 1 hour or until firm enough to shape.
  7. Shape into small drops about 1 inch.

  9. Prior to removing Truffles from freezer, mix cocoa and 1 Tbsp of instant coffee together, crushing the coffee granules to make a fine powder.
