Do you enrobe these with tempered chocolate or just roll them in cocoa powder?

I enrobe with tempered chocolate myself - how soon will they be eaten?

Not sure actually. Would you keep them refrigerated?

If I enrobe I keep them at room temperature in an airtight container.

Ok, do you ever enrobe with chocolate that isn't tempered? What if you didn't enrobe at all? Would they be ok at room temperature or should they be refrigerated? Sorry, I don't have much experience with this!

I only enrobe with untempered chocolate if I screw up and forget to check my temper! If you want to just roll in some cocoa powder (I'd add some powdered sugar to it - cause I find plain cocoa a little hard to take on a truffle) - then put in your air tight container, in the fridge. Put them at room temperature for a day before opening the container to ensure that condensation doesn't screw up your cocoa. Make sure people eat them in a day or two.

Oh ok, so they are "time sensitive?" I wonder if they could be frozen. I was kind of hoping they would be ok for a couple of weeks at least. Shows you how ignorant I am to the world of chocolate truffles, haha!

Same airtight box, in the freezer - take out 48 hours before - 24 hours in fridge - 24 hours at room temperature before opening the box. Eat in a couple of days.
