Roll truffles in 1/2 cup chopped nuts, crushed peppermint candies or coloured sprinkles immediately after dipping in melted chocolate.
Add 1 to 2 tsp. of your favourite extract, such as peppermint, rum or almond, to the chocolate mixture before shaping into balls. Or, add 1/4 cup of your favourite liqueur, such as orange or raspberry, to the chocolate mixture before shaping into balls.
Instead of dipping truffles in chocolate, coat with icing sugar or unsweetened cocoa powder.
Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.
