"This delightful recipe came from Joan Coukos of Manhattan's two year old Chocolat Moderne. These truffles are coated with a variety of flavorings, including blends of Chinese and Mexican spices. Adapted from Food & Wine magazine."

"These are delicious! I liked the chile coating and the five spice coating best. I used a bowl of ice and just cooled my hands by handling ice. It worked great! I recommend making these about the size of hazelnuts in order to get a good combination of flavors of the chocolate and the coating. Thank you for posting these!"
"wow, if you like a very strong chocolate truffle this is for you, the spices emphasise the choc and 20 folds the richness, unfortunately the only thing i did not add was the chipotle and the ancho which was the taste i really wanted but our local shops had none so will definately be making another batch, it is confusing to get all the bowls with the right ingredients so next time i am sitting the 4 bowls out and the ingredients in front of the bowls, but apart from that great recipe, very easy to make. Thanks for posting"
