I wasn't sure about this combination, but it worked up really well and they were delicious! Make sure the nuts are very finely chopped...almost nut dust...if you like a smooth, rich truffle. With all my truffles I use a 1 TBLS. scoop and lay them out on waxed paper, then refridgerate them. When firm, I lightly roll them into a 'perfect' ball shape, then roll them in coating. It cuts down on refrigerator time. Again, these were really good and I would make again.
