Method

Chefs tips
  • You could try coating your truffles with roasted sesame seeds, liquorice powder, desiccated coconut, chopped nuts, matcha green tea powder, or leave them plain. The flavouring is versatile, too – orange, coffee, peppermint, or even rum, make great alternatives.
  • These truffles are advised as an occasional treat, but are perfect for sharing or giving as gifts.
