    These look delicious and seem pretty easy! I will definitely be adding these to the list for my husband’s 30th birthday (which is in a couple weeks and can withstand a little Christmas infusion).

      The frozen truffles are quite easy to work with, I just dunk them in the chocolate, pick it up gently with a fork and gently tap the fork on the inside of the bowl to shake off the excess chocolate. Then I just use another fork to help place the truffle on wax paper.
