  • Pour mixture into shallow dish; refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

  • Using 1/2-ounce ice-cream scoop, form balls from mixture; place on parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm. Remove from refrigerator; working quickly, roll each truffle between your hands to form a smooth ball; toss truffles in assorted cocoa powders. If truffles become too soft to handle, chill again until firm.
