Whole almonds are lightly coated in cinnamon syrup and then covered in melted chocolate. Half of the chocolate covered almonds are dusted in cocoa powder and half in confectioners' sugar to create a decorative display of contrasting colors.
These delectable truffles make great holiday gifts. For pretty packing, look for mini foil or paper candy cups in the baking aisle of supermarkets or at specialty shops. While the truffles are still slightly soft, roll them in the desired coatings.
