Let stand at room temperature until thickening, about 1 hour.  Place the truffle mixture in to a refrigerator for an hour or so, until you are able to roll a ball shape.  Scoop spoonful amounts of the chocolate mixture in to a bowl of the cocoa powder.  Gently roll the chocolate between cocoa powdered palms to form a round powdered ball.  Place on parchment paper or plate.  Roll a second time in cocoa powder.  Serve at room temperature.  Makes about 40 truffles.
