Incredibly Easy Truffles

For some reason, I always thought that making truffles was a laborious task.
However, after rolling up my sleeves and diving in to create these delicious little gems, I now realize that it can be incredibly easy to make them.

These truffles can be ready in the blink of an eye, and would be a wonderful treat to make for Valentine’s Day.

~Enjoy~
