Finishing the Truffles

  1. Roll the truffles by hand just a little to create a smooth shape.
  2. Coat the truffles by hand in pre-crystallized dark chocolate.
  3. Immediately roll the truffles in cocoa powder using a table fork. Be sure to roll the truffles in the same direction to create an even carved texture. 
  4. Allow the truffles to harden in the cocoa powder, then sift them to remove the excess cocoa powder.
