Method

  1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, add the remaining ingredients.

Instead of rolling in cocoa/icing sugar, dip into melted chocolate, then into chopped walnut, desiccated coconut or leave with just plain chocolate!

If giving these as a present, Will they last in the Box? or do they have to be kept in a fridge until eaten??

I add a little almond essence and dip them in melted chocolate rather than cocoa. Yummy.

Full of flavour if you use good chocolate and alcohol!

I found these plain and quite tasteless, and they didn't taste like truffles at all! But they are quick to make though, so good if you're in a hurry.
