Notes

Please note: Concerns about consuming raw flour have increased. This is not an issue in baked goods but, in recipes like these truffles where the flour isn't baked, it's advisable to bake the raw flour first.
To do so, spread flour on a large baking sheet and bake in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes. Allow to cool then proceed with recipe.
