      I've been using this exact recipe for years now. I have to make it every year at Christmas or I receive a lot of complaints! To make them more festive I alternate rolling the truffles in sweet paprika, dried parsley flakes, almond slivers and finely shredded white cheddar. Makes a nice green, red, and white plate that way. You can leave out the nuts entirely if allergies are an issue. If you don't have time to roll all the little balls you can also make one large log rolled in your chosen topping and put it out with a spreading knife.
