    3. Pop into the fridge, uncovered, for 2 hours or overnight.

    5.Meanwhile melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.

    6. Remove the truffles from the fridge or freezer and dip to coat in the white chocolate, tapping off any excess.

    7. Allow the chocolate to set totally before serving. Serve the truffles at room temperature.

    Tip: If you would like a smoother, neater looking truffle, double the amount of white chocolate and repeat by coating again after the first dip has set.
