Hand Dipped Chocolate

I LOVE making chocolates!! From left to right: Milk chocolate truffle, mint chocolate truffle, Ritz Twix, scotchy mellows (my favorite!) , peanut butter creams. I love the challenge of coming up with new flavors. The latest is a chocolate raspberry truffle. Mmmm!

great! Thanks! I am in the process of making them and was wondering if the dough is suppose to be crumbly or if I did something wrong? Either way the dough is yummy!

The dough really is pretty dry. If it was too hard to roll into balls maybe add a little less flour next time.
