Toasting really brings the flavor of the pecans alive! To toast pecans, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.
For uniform-sized truffles, a #100 cookie or ice cream scoop comes in handy.
For a special touch, place each truffle in a decorative paper candy cup.
