7. Dunk the truffles in the melted chocolate making sure to cover them.
8. Scoop them up with a fork and transfer them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
9. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.
10. Melt some white chocolate and add a little green/orange/pink gel food colouring, depending on the flavour you’re making. Mix the gel colour in with the white melted chocolate until you have your desired colour.
