  1. Mix all of the filling ingredients in a big bowl. Pay attention to the flavor of the batter and tweak to fit your loved one's tastes. If they like Nutella, for example, use hazelnut butter and a really chocolatey whey protein powder, like Cellucor. If your partner is the first to dive into a Reese's cup, add peanut butter to the batter. You can even throw in a handful of almonds!
  2. Once you achieve the right texture, shape the batter into eight balls and set them aside. Remember that if your batter is too sticky to shape, you should add a bit more cocoa powder. If it's too dry or crumbly, add a bit more milk.
  3. Melt your dark chocolate by sticking it in the microwave or, if you're feeling fancy, melt it in a bain marie, which is just a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water.
  4. When your dark chocolate has melted, dunk the balls in them and transfer them to a plate or chopping board that's covered in foil or baking paper. This will help prevent the balls from sticking when you unmold them.
  5. Finally, top your truffles with melted white chocolate (optional, but awesome), chopped nuts, chocolate flakes, or coconut flakes!
