Chocolate Fruit Mince Truffles
Makes approximately 36, depending on size
A fun way to present truffles is to pop them onto skewers then place in cellophane bags so they look like cake pops. Rolled in different coatings, such as chopped nuts or coconut, these truffles make great edible Christmas gifts.

1/4 cup Alison’s Pantry crystallised ginger, chopped
150g dark chocolate, melted, to coat
