There's no need for complicated chocolate strawberry truffle recipes! If it's small, and hard enough to cover with chocolate (but soft enough to chew easily), then you can make a truffle with it! So truffles are made out of many things. Of course, on this site, the idea is strawberry-flavored truffles.
Here's a nice strawberry marshmallow truffle:
An actual truffle is a fungus, like a mushroom. However, it grows underground and must be removed from the earth. Because of this, when they are first found these truffles are covered in dirt. So, chocolate "truffles" are traditionally coated in cocoa powder to give them a "freshly dug" look. More recently, sprinkling with confectioner's sugar, crumbled nuts or other things is sometimes done rather than using cocoa. There are even some who don't use any extra coatings at all, like the treats on this page. If you've got the taste of strawberry and chocolate, you don't really need anything else!
It is also traditional for chocolate truffles to be round-ish (not perfectly round, but just mostly round, like a true truffle). Getting this shape can be done in several ways. One nice way to get the shape (and size) for a round truffle is by using a melon baller, as was done in shaping this strawberry sorbet truffle:
Strawberry sorbet truffles are amazing! Just be sure to keep them in the freezer until you are ready to eat them because they will melt fast.
Temperature is really important in making truffles. You can use a warmer chocolate to coat something like strawberry marshmallows or cheesecake, but a lot of things will need chocolate that is liquid at room temperature (doesn't need to be heated), such as chocolate ice cream "shell" topping. That's what is needed for strawberry sorbet truffles, of course. It also works for some other obvious things like ice cream and sherbet. However, it can also be used for yogurt that's been frozen. Strawberry jelly and gelatin can be frozen, too, and then coated with cold-hardening chocolate.
