Easy Chocolate Truffles (made with cocoa powder)

Easy Chocolate Truffles (made with cocoa powder)

As most of you probably know by now, I love truffles. The other day I had off for Yom Kippur (the benefits of working for the school system...), and I decided to make a batch of chocolate truffles. I didn't want to spend too much time in the kitchen, so I made truffles that require barely any hands-on time. Unlike the cookie dough, coconut, or sweet cream & walnut truffles, these truffles are not dipped in chocolate. They are simply rolled or dusted in cocoa powder, powdered sugar, nuts, coconut, or anything yummy that you can think of. I chose to roll some in cocoa powder with cacao nibs, and I rolled the others in toasted coconut. Greg loved the truffles, I loved the truffles, my mom and dad loved the truffles, and I think my coworkers loved them too! And, I hope you will also fall in love with these easy chocolate truffles. Enjoy!
