Truffles with Fruit Flavored Cheese
These are so good they melt in your mouth- that is if you can stand to not just eat them right up!
These are good rolled in 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, instead of the coating, too. Refrigerate.
Better get started on these now as they should be refrigerated up to one week. Then bring to room temperature just before serving.
