Can I just tell you how happy I am that the Salted Caramel Mocha’s are back at Starbucks?

I wait all year for them to bring them back, and I had my first one this fall the other night after my son’s soccer game.  And I fell in love with it all over again!!  I now have salted caramel mocha everything on my brain.   I seriously couldn’t rest until I recreated another yummy salted caramel treat…I didn’t think you would mind :-)

The great thing about these cookie dough truffles is that you get a whole batch for the same price as one drink at Starbucks.  Not that I don’t think the drinks are worth it…I drink my share of them, believe me.

In fact, I’m seriously considering stopping on the way to the kid’s soccer and volleyball games tonight for another one.  I can never have enough salted caramel.  Ever!

Of course all weekend long all I could think about was making something new and delicious that included my fav flavors.

Then it hit me…why not take these Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Dough Truffles and change them slightly to include the mocha and salted caramel.  Nothing against my favorite candy, but I think these Salted Caramel Mocha Truffles may have them beat by a mile.  There is just something about sweet and salty that truly gets me every. single. time!

The best thing about these truffles (other than being cheaper than Starbucks) is that they are completely no bake.   You beat everything together in a bowl and roll them into 3 dozen bite sized balls.  I do recommend refrigerating them for about 30 minutes.  It just makes it easier to dip them in the melted chocolate.   Use a toothpick to dip and tap.  After the chocolate has set up all the way, heat the caramel and drizzle it over the tops.  You do want to let it cool just for a minute or two, or you will have white chocolate melting too.  But seriously it doesn’t affect the taste at all…I would know.  I had a few of these bad boys each day this weekend.

Diet?  Who cares when you have these amazing salty and sweet treats in front of you.

Salted Caramel Mocha Truffles

Prep Time: 1 hour

Yield: 36 truffles

Salted Caramel Mocha Truffles

Mocha cookie dough truffles dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt are a great decadent treat.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon coffee extract (I use McCormicks)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons milk
1 Tablespoon instant coffee
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder (I use Hershey's)
1 1/4 cups flour
8 ounces white melting chocolate (CandiQuik)
1/4 cup caramel baking bits
2 teaspoons water
sea salt

Instructions

  1. Beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Add the extract and salt and beat again. Stir the instant coffee into the milk until dissolved. Pour the milk into the butter mixture alternately with the cocoa powder and flour. Beat until everything is combined.
  2. Roll the cookie dough into 36 balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until hard.
  3. Melt the CandiQuik according to the package directions. Use a toothpick and dip the truffles in the chocolate. Tap off the excess chocolate and set on wax paper to set.
  4. Place the caramel bits and water in a small sauce pan. Heat on medium until melted and creamy. Let cool for a minute or two. Drizzle over the truffles and sprinkle with sea salt. You may need to gently press the salt on top to get it to stick to the caramel if you wait too long. Store in a loosely sealed container for 2-3 days. Refrigerate if keeping longer. Makes 36 truffles.

Notes

Use vanilla extract if you can't find the coffee extract.

    Hello my pretties! I nned one of those now! I may have to stop at Starbucks on the way home. You have my permission to keep the salted caramel recipes coming. I make salted caramels as Christmas gifts and not many actually make it out of the house.

    Dang! I was so hoping I had all the ingredients on hand, cause I would have printed out the recipe and gone STRAIGHT to my kitchen! But I saved the recipe and next trip to the store, watch out! I’m going to put the ‘missing’ ingredients in a separate bag, go straight to the kitchen when I get back and make the family put the rest of the stuff away! :O)

    Would it be sacrilegious to say I will be making these with out the salt? I just can’t get into sweet and salty, but the rest of the flavors in these truffles are irresistible! Caramel, chocolate, and coffee sound delicious! I always come to you, Jocelyn, for my baked caffeine fix. :)

    These look amazing! Believe it or not, I’ve never had a salted caramel mocha at sbux — I drink plain old double tall nonfat lattes with cinnamon. (Yawn). I would completely gobble up these babies by the dozen, however, as I adore cookie dough truffles and that combination sounds perfect!

    I am ashamed to say that I haven’t tried that drink yet, I have all the best intentions on doing it this time. But after seeing these truffles I am sold and eating these first. I am literally salivating at the pictures! HOLY YUM! Pinning

    I love those drinks too!
    I’ve gotta make these next week when my husband is in Washington training for his new job. I have a feeling that laying in bed at night, popping these into my mouth will make his absence a little bit easier to deal with.
    You’ve tried the salted caramel hot apple cider right or is it the salted hot chocolate…or maybe they make one of each. Either way…I think you need to continue your trend of making treats using Starbucks as your muse :)

    We love everything salted caramel and are so happy to have found your blog. You offer so many salted caramel recipe options, and everyone of them looks delicious. Rather than getting our salted caramel fix at Starbucks (love their salted caramel cake pops), we will try to make our own. T
