**To make the star shaped truffles: when shaping the balls, make them much bigger. Big enough to use a cookie cutter on. Refrigerate or freeze them until hardened. Then dip in candy coating and let harden. Trim excess candy coating. The dough may get soft, simply stick them in the freezer for a couple minutes.**

If you don’t make the star shaped truffles, this is what they look like.
