There are many truffle recipes I adore. I wanted to create a texture that are smoother and creamier and these truffles happened.
They look pretty amazing with the colourful coating, right? You can try other coatings like goji berry, coloured buckwheat, other superfood powders. These truffles last several days in the fridge but pomegranate powder can absorb moisture and turn sticky so I added chopped goji berries on top afterwards.
