Add butter and toss to combine. Place a sheet of parchment paper on the bottom of a 9"x9" baking dish and pour in Oreo mixture, pressing down to form a crust. MAKE THE MOCHA TRUFFLE: Melt chocolate in 30 second intervals in the microwave until fully melted, then set aside to cool. In a large bowl, using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk at- tachment, beat butter and vanilla on medium, until light and fluffy. Turn mixer to low, and gradually mix in powdered sugar, 2 cups at a time. Once combined, mix in heavy cream, coffee, and salt. MAKE THE GANACHE: Put semi-sweet chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Heat heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat, cooking just until small bubbles form. Pour warm cream on top of chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes, until chocolate has mostly melted. Stir to com- bine, then pour on top of truffle bars. Refrigerate truffle bars for one hour, then serve. Source: Pinterest.com. , Inc. The area's finest selection of collectibles!
