These make lovely gifts for birthdays or when visiting a friend or when you just fancy something small and delicious as dessert. These are little treats delicately laced with your favourite flavours.
Try shelled and crushed pistachio nuts, lightly toasted desiccated coconut or roll a truffle flavoured with orange zest and juice in cocoa powder.To coat in chocolate, line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Melt 100g milk, dark or white chocolate for 10 truffles. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly. With a fork, pick up one truffle at a time and
hold over the bowl of melted chocolate. Spoon the chocolate over the truffle until well-coated. Place on the baking tray, then chill. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3 days, or freeze for up to a month. Defrost in the fridge overnight. To give as presents, place 8-10 truffles in individual foil or paper cases inside small, lined boxes tied with ribbon. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to give them!
