Chocolate Truffles

Trust me when I tell you that these little truffles won't last very long. They're the perfect sweet treat. I had leftover cake, so I thought it was the perfect excuse to test out some truffles. To see the recipe for the cake I use in this recipe, click here.

One of the fun things about making truffles is that you can roll them in whatever topping your heart desires. The sky is the limit. I used a mixture of chopped almonds, shaved coconut and grated dark chocolate. But use whatever toppings you're in the mood for! For something fun and different you could roll them in sprinkles.

METHOD
