Chocolate TrufflesI know it sounds a bit counter productive but these are not going to last long in the fridge.  You'll be diving in for more with every last mouthful.  These chocolaty morsels are a new recipe from my latest recipe book.

Although not exactly textbook truffles, take a walk over to the dark side and you'll discover that they are not only delicious and texturally sound but can also fit the bill when you're in need of an easy chocolate fix.

A perfect accompaniment for your cup of tea, why not infuse them with your own flavours such as peppermint or orange to make them unique.

Wrapped up in pretty boxes and tied with ribbon, they make the perfect homemade gift. It's best to house them in the fridge until you’re ready to give them, if you can last that long from opening the refrigerator door.

Chocolate Truffles can be frozen for up to a month in a sealed container, then all you need to do is drag them out and pop them into the fridge a few hours before consuming.
