Store the truffles in an airtight container in a cool, dry place away from light or in a refrigerator. Serve them at room temperature.

Try tweaking the recipe to match your own particular sweet tooth! Other ways to make these truffles could include using white chocolate, milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or even your favorite candy bar. Mixing different kinds of chocolate bars together will provide a unique twist. For even more chocolate, use chocolate cookies instead of sweet biscuits or crackers. But the inside isn't the only component you can change. Instead of coating the truffles in cocoa, try rolling them in powdered sugar, chopped peanuts or walnuts, grated chocolate chips, or granola. Try each kind and see which one you enjoy the most!
