Colored Cocoa Powders

Is there such a thing as colored cocoa powder? I have been on a binge lately making cocoa dusted truffles but I can't tell them apart from the outside. They all look alike. I make the ganache, scoop the hardened ganache onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet using a 1 oz. scoop, coat them in cocoa powder, drain off excess in a big strainer and then let them set on more wax paper on a cookie sheet. So far I have done Cherrys in Port, Apricot in Orange Licquor, and Philipine Mango in Brandy. They are all good but they all look alike. To be clever, I stuck a piece of the cherry or apricot into a slice I made on top of the truffle but I was hoping for something better looking and easier. Thanks
