Pour the entire mixture into a baking pan lined with parchment paper. This method requires you to portion the truffles after freezing.
Pour the mixture into a muffin tray lined with muffin cups (full sized, or mini, the choice is yours!)
Regardless of which method you choose, place your truffles into the freezer and chill until solid. This should only take about 20-30 minutes.
Right before you’re about to place your truffles into the freezer, garnish with your choice of toppings. We the first method mentioned above and used our dark chocolate covered hazelnuts to garnish half of our truffles, placing one piece of chocolate on each serving, for the perfect decadent topping to an already decadent treat. On the remaining truffles, we sprinkled some of our chocolate probiotic sorghum cereal on top for an added crunchy texture.
Once they’re portioned, you can place all of your truffled into one container or a freezer safe bag for keeping. Enjoy straight out of the freezer!
