Mint Chocolate Truffles

Dark and richly flavored with semisweet and mint-chocolate chips, these heavenly truffles will please the chocolate lovers on your list. Smooth and velvety inside, these truffles are reminiscent of truffles made the more complicated way with ganache, yet our ingredients melt quickly in the microwave. After a good chill in the fridge, scoop the mix into tiny balls and roll in cocoa powder. Make and deliver these on the same day in a box lined with colorful papers.
