Cinnamon Coffee Truffles

There is nothing like the smell of fresh cinnamon coffee truffles!  When melting chocolate be sure to stir continuously.  This will help the chocolate to melt and become smooth. Should your chocolate become clumpy add 1 t of solid shortening per square of chocolate and continue stirring until the mixture becomes smooth.
