Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter

  • ½ cup caramel bits
  • 16 ounces Ghirardellis dark chocolate melting wafers

Comments & Reviews

    1. They are made by Kraft, in a bag in the baking aisle (sometimes in the candy aisle). If you can’t find them, you can use regular caramels.

  1. Totally agreed girl, coffee at home in your pjs is the best kind. 🙂 Then it just feels special when you do get a starbucks when your out too!

    These truffles look and sound amazing! Love the salted caramel flavors, its my weak spot! Pinned this and totally trying!

  2. I am swooning over these truffles. That fudgy center is the best!
    It’s crazy the amount of cash we have to spend on the things we NEED. I think we are in the wrong career field, lol.

  3. I love love salted caramel and the salted caramel mocha – adore!! These truffles are happening soon! Best way to relax after a costly appointment! Pinned!

  4. Oooh, these look so special. I love that fudgy center! And with mocha. Wow.
    Next time you hit Starbucks, buy a salted caramel cake pop and freeze it. It’s really good frozen.
    But probably not as good as these!

  5. Salted Caramel Mochas are my fave drink at Starbucks (other than Eggnog lattes but those are only in December) and i love the idea of having them in truffle form right in my own kitchen! Pinning this immediately! 😀

  6. Oooh, these look awesome! And it totally reminded me that I haven’t had my first Salted Caramel Mocha yet this year!

  7. These look awesome and you make the best truffles! Patience of a Saint 🙂

    And the eye doctor, ouch. Isn’t it amazing how much you can spend going to the doctor and that’s even WITH insurance. My daughter’s broken arm from this spring seriously is costing me the equivalent of a decent car.

    I need these! Pinned 🙂

    1. Yeah, there is a lot of “waiting” when it comes to truffles. But after making so many, it goes fast 🙂
      I hope your daughter’s arm is all healed up. We dealt with a broken wrist for over 3 months last summer. Cha-ching!
      Thanks for the pin 🙂
