These are very rich and enticing. Use red sprinkles for Valentine's Day, green ones for St. Patrick's Day and red, white and blue ones for Australia Day! Top with your choice of toppings, some we like: colored sugar, chocolate sprinkles, and colored sprinkles!
Best truffle recipe! I like to divide the chocolate mix into four even parts and add 1 Tbsp flavoring to each. I've used almond and vanilla extracts; raspberry, orange, irish cream, whiskey and mint liqueurs; and cinnamon and orange oils. I've only heard rave reviews! - 29 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are great. Easy, crowd-pleasing and very attractive and decadent looking. Tips; divide the mixture into four parts and chill separately. They take a while to roll, and while you're making one batch, the rest of the mixture may get soft and sticky. Also, chill in a shallow container so the mixture hardens more evenly (and faster). I used ground pecans, cocoa and medium flaked unsweetened coconut. My friends loved them and thought they had a dozen ingredients! - 20 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Yum and easy! Definately a keeper for holiday tins. BTW - check out Chocolate Truffles by Eagle Brand on this website...it is the same recipe, but outlines how to handle flavour variations. - 29 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
