I gave these in little Valentine's boxes to family and they LOVED them. My sister-in-law told me never to make them for her again cause she ate the whole box except for one as soon as I brought them to her. HEAVENLY SMOOTH MELT IN YOUR MOUTH TRUFFLES. AND so easy....THANKS

Best Truffles! I added crushed Marias which are Mexican cookies and that gave the Truffles a great texture.

These are good, but the texture isn't as smooth as other truffles. Also, I had to refrigerate the mixture to form into balls, it was too soft just sitting at room temp.
