    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.  -  06 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!  -  07 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Altered ingredient amounts. I doubled the amount of cake crumbs as it was only liquid chocolate with the amount suggested. I also doubled the rum as I couldn't taste it with only 2 tsp, and it was for a present.  -  26 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
