  8. I have made truffles before, and I would love to give your recipe a try. Last time I made them, I did not use the right tool to form the truffle, and they were lopsided. I can see the utensil you used in the picture: is it a lemon baller? Or ice cream scoop? Yours are absolutely divine! They look like they could be featured in a magazine. I want mine to be that pretty, haha! 🙂
