Smooth and creamy, and adult holiday treat. I have, in the past, dispensed with the vermicelli, and simply rolled the truffles in unsweetened cocoa powder.

These truffles are VERY rich and very delcious. They get a bit harder than I was hoping for, but they tasted so good that it wasnt a problem in my book. Thanks for the recipe :)
