Shelf life of homemade chocolate truffles?

If I make the ganache today how long will it keep in a bowl in the fridge?

I'd rather make the truffle centers and dip them later, though? How would I keep formed truffles before covering ad how long should I do it?

  1. I've always kept the ganache in a bowl in the refrigerator but it gets hard. I've always ended up microwaving gently to soften it enough to roll. But, I was just reading this site which has good information. I love how he pipes the ganache into balls first and then refrigerates (up to a week covered in plastic he says). It would make making the balls so much easier. I'll definitely do it the next time.
