Coconut Truffles

Coconut Truffles
I recently sent my parents a holiday package filled with homemade goodies, including Orange infused dry fruit chocolate balls, Chocolate Dipped Apricots, hazelnut chocolate spread, Orange Marmalade and Coconut truffles. Not only are homemade sweets satisfying to make, I am convinced they taste much better than store bought goods. And above all homemade goods are without all the preservatives and weird ingredients. Healthier to eat and satisfactory on your pocket. Here is the recipe for the Coconut Truffles. It makes about 20 1 inch truffles. You can get a larger yield if you make these smaller.
You can also find recipes for Orange infused dry fruit chocolate balls, Chocolate Dipped Apricots and Orange Marmalade on this website in Dessert Section. So go ahead and send your loved ones some love this festival season.
