Whilst not strictly ‘truffles’ in that no chocolate is involved whatsoever, these little bites of creamy gooeyness are well called truffles. Dusted in plenty of cinnamon, (do not inhale whilst milling!) they are quite different and delicious, working well for the non chocolate sweet eater. (Are there any of those out there? Seriously?) Love love love these. Great for gifting, or just plain guilt free munching.
