Kitchen Tips

Size Wise
Chocolate truffles are rolled in a variety of coatings for sweet treats that are perfect for gift-giving or for serving on a special occasion.

Note
Truffle mixture softens quickly so when rolling, so only remove about 1 doz. truffles from the refrigerator at a time. If truffles soften too much to roll, return them to the refrigerator to chill them until firm.

Make it Easy
Use a melon baller to portion the chocolate mixture for each truffle. Truffles do not need to be perfectly round and smooth – a slightly rough appearance is considered typical.

How to Store
Store in tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
