"I've had very mixed reviews on these. All have thought that the truffles were delicious, the outside powder is where the disputes stem from. Some people love it, others find it too bitter. I tend to lean more towards finding it bitter so I roll mine in hot chocolate powder! Pefection!"

"I didn't much care for the cocoa/coffee combination. It was bitter and I didn't taste the coffee. The truffle itself was awesome. I added my own variation and cute up some almonds and rolled them in that. Really good. Got great feedback."
