Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. With a spoon, scoop chocolate and make

rounded balls. Drop onto parchment paper. Refrigerate again for 20 minutes. Round balls

and drop into the nut coating. Repeat. Shake the pie plate to coat the truffles evenly. Place

into a container, separating the layers with additional waxed paper. Cover tightly and

refrigerate up to 2 weeks, or freeze up to 3 months. Also try cocoa powder or pistachios for

coating.
