Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard work but WORTH IT!!! My mom and I have made these every year for 4 years. She found the recipe one year because she is a Wilton cake instructor. We've played with the recipe over the years and find it helpful if we cut some of the liquid or put powdered sugar into the mix. We've also used Gharadelli White Chocolate chips instead of candy melts and then just candy coated them into candy melts. it makes them even creamier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read all the reviews and people keep complaining about rolling them and dipping them. WHICH IS A HORRID WAY TO MAKE TRUFFLES. Yes they look more like truffles but buy a candy mold for this seriously they're like $1.99 it's so much easier to just paint in some chocolate let it sit put the filling and cover with chocolate and stick it in the fridge and then there you go then when you take them out of the mold decorate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Even after reading the other reviews, I knew this recipe was apparently not as easy as it first appears from reading it I was excited to make these for a Christmas cookie exchange party - something new and unique. Although they are delicious, I am exhausted and so stressed out I doubt I will even be able to enjoy them. The recipe does not begin to tell the story of the time and work involved in these truffles. No matter what I did, the balls would turn to mush as soon as I put them into the melted chocolate. I tried cooling the chocolate longer, but that just made the chocolate thick and harder to work with. I finally just put each mushy chocolate covered ball into a mini cupcake paper to try to control the spreading and poured on a mass of sprinkles to cover up the mess. They tasted great but not even one turned out round, they all looked like a misshaped Reese's peanut butter cup from being in the cupcake paper. I will definitely NOT be bringing copies of the receipe to the cookie exchange with me. :(
