“Preparation time includes refrigeration time. I use this as a basic recipe and then add whatever I like. I have tried adding ground nuts: almonds with Amaretto liqueur, hazelnuts with Frangelico liqueur. I don't always dip them in a chocolate coating, sometimes I roll them in coconut, or a cocoa-icing sugar mix or finely chopped nuts. There are so many possibilities!”
36 truffles
