I have never made truffles before and these were so EASY to make. Instead of putting the mixture in the fridge for 20 minutes, I actually put it in the freezer to speed the process up just a bit...

These were good, but I preferred the firmer consistency of the "Basic Truffles" recipe on this site, which only calls for 1/3 C cream. These truffles were too creamy for my personal preference; ...

So, so good!!!! Thought I'd try "Fat Free Half & Half" & it worked!!!! Less fat, more to eat :)

Excellent! I placed a pistachio nut in miniature cupcake wraps then filled with chocolate mixture, topped with another nut. Next time I'll use almonds on top and almond extract in the mixture.

Follow the directions and these will turn out AMAZING. Don't let them harden too much in the fridge after you drop them on wax paper or you'll have to let them warm up a bit before rolling them ...

These were well liked, but they were a little of a pain to make. After the first 20 minutes, the chocolate just plopped on the bake sheet and flattened out, so I would let it set in the fridge ...

I rolled these in coconut and they were fantastic. Do make sure you keep them in the fridge to keep their flavour!

This was very easy to make and super delish. The issue I had was that these were way too soft for a stand alone truffle. I had to freeze them to get them to a consistency I could handle. I ended...

So easy and very rich and it got raves. But you gotta love choclate!!!!
