    Hi Adriana I made these again today and they are simply so decadent, its hard to stop at just one….I did find it a bit hard to roll the mixture into the balls, I did put in the fridge to harden up but it still melted easily on my hands when rolling, any ideas about this you can pass on to me, they still tasted fantastic though !! I notice you have a similar type of orange chocolate ball recipe does it taste the same, just wondering …..thanks again xxx

      Hi Julie, Are you stirring the content in the jar of coconut butter before using? Maybe let them firm up for longer or place them in the freezer. It’s best to roll each ball as fast as possible because the coconut oil does melt when it comes in contact with our skin. My other chocolate truffle recipe is completely different.
