I read here that a member had trouble rolling the truffles into balls. As a suggestion, put the mixture in the freezer for 20 minutes and coat a 1" cookie scoop with spray oil. Use the scoop to form the balls, put on a pan and return them to the freezer or refrigerator until they are set. If you would like to coat them with chocolate as a finishing touch, insert a tooth pic into each one before setting. Then the balls can be dipped with chocolate and returned to the frige for a last set. :)

These tasted pretty good. But I only got 9 truffles out of this recipe. Did this happen to you guys?

Trying to roll them into balls was a huge mess. The chocolate melted in my hands. It was difficult to roll them in nuts when both of my hands were filled with melted chocolate. I won't make these again. Too messy!
