Cappuccino Truffles: National Cappuccino Day

Today is National Cappuccino Day. I'm sure you've already had a cappuccino to celebrate, but here's another way to celebrate the day--Cappuccino Truffles. This easy recipe is from Taste of Home. These are absolutely delicious.

CAPPUCCINO TRUFFLES

Ingredients 
1 Tbsp boiling water
2 tsp instant coffee granules
2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 Tbsp butter, softened
3 Tbsp sugar

Directions 
In small bowl, combine water, coffee and 1 tsp cinnamon; set aside.
In small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Remove from the heat; whisk in chocolate and butter until smooth. Stir in coffee mixture. Press plastic wrap onto surface. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
In small bowl, combine sugar and remaining cinnamon. Shape chocolate into 1-inch balls; roll in cinnamon-sugar.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firm.

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen.
