Recipe Notes

To coat truffles I first shape the truffles and then I put the cocoa powder in a shallow pan and press my hands into the powder dusting my palms. Then I roll the truffles in my hands coating each one in cocoa before placing in miniature paper cups.

Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
