"These truffles will be soft inside despite that it feels firm on the outside. You only need to store them in a cool place, but not necessarily the fridge. Make sure you always use an airtight container! Be sure to use good quality chocolate!"

  • Note
  • I save up chocolate cake crumbs whenever I have a chance. They can be stored in the freezer. Pack the crumbs in the amount needed. A good chocolate cake makes all the difference!

WOW...these truffles are out of this world!! The addition of chocolate cake crumbs really makes these truffles unique. I made 75 truffles for my graduation party, but since we don't drink, I modified slightly. I made 25 peanut butter truffles (omitted rum and added a few tbs. of creamy peanut butter), 25 espresso truffles (replaced rum with espresso and added instant coffee granules), and 25 raspberry truffles (omitted rum and added raspberry preserves). For coating, I dipped some in melted chocolate and rolled others in cocoa, nuts, and flaked coconut.

This was my first time making truffles and they turned out great! I made them with half and half and coated them with melted chocolate. Very easy to make!

Great recipe. The chocolate was taking ages to melt for me, so I sat my bowl in another shallow bowl of hot water till it melted down. Really easy to make and so very very delicious. the alcohol is just a nice background note (and i put more in than the recpie said too) but you definitely need to usehigh quality chocolate to make them. Excellent present idea!
