Chocolate Truffles

This super easy, yet decadent treat is fantastic to make during these last few weeks of Winter, as the cooler temperature makes it easier to handle. But otherwise this is fantastic year round! (Believe me, these taste almost like the chocolate truffles from Maison Auer in Nice, France).
