Food Friday: His & Hers Christmas Truffles

His & Hers Christmas Truffles
These truffles are a terrific Christmas standby as once you’ve made the basic truffle you can pop them on a tray in the freezer and when they’re frozen solid, you can put them in a freezer bag. Then when you want them just leave them to defrost for a couple of hours in the fridge and coat just before serving!
