    TO ROLL THE TRUFFLES
  17. On a piece of parchment paper spoon out tsp size lumps so that they are not touching.
  18. Place in the fridge for another hour. This extra hour in the fridge is optional, but it will make them more manageable to work with.
  19. Take them out of the fridge and roll each lump into a ball, then either roll them in the raspberry sugar, or the spice mixture for the coffee ones. You can leave them like that or you can dip them in chocolate.
  20. It can be a bit tricky to dip them in chocolate. This a Video on how to dip Truffles that might help.
