I love these truffles. They hit the spot when i’m looking for a mid-morning or afternoon snack and they keep in the freezer for at least a month. In fact, I keep mine in the freezer and take one out at a time. You can also keep them in the refrigerator if you’d prefer but they’ll last longer in the freezer and don’t get super hard so you won’t have to worry about hurting your teeth.
