Decadent Chocolate Truffles
These decadent chocolate truffles are the real deal... which means two things. Firstly, they are deliciously decadent – the taste is sensational. Secondly, they are a bit of a pain in the proverbial to create! The mixture is a lot like mud. We thoroughly recommend that you create them QUITE small so they are bite-size, and coat them and keep them chilled until serving or gifting so as not to create dirty hands! Feel free to use gloves.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "Delightful little gems of joy. If you want to impress your guests with something a little decadent, then this is a great recipe. Why not mix it up and have different coatings, like cocoa, coconut, sprinkles or crushed nuts?" - Liz
