      These are so decadent, just like a chocolatey caramel fudge...Wow!
      So easy to make, although you must keep an eye on the condensed milk simmering........ I nearly lost it......lol
      I followed the recipe as written and these turned out so yummy!
      I did use buttered hands at first, but found it so much easier just using slightly wet hands. I made mine a little smaller, and got 18 truffles. I placed them in small coloured patty cases and they look so pretty!
      Thanks Jubes, for a great truffle recipe.

      Great truffle recipe! Although I had to refrigerate the chocolate longer than the recipe suggests, they still turned out well. I could not find chocolate sprinkles so I did the next best thing -- I rolled them in cocoa powder. Thank you for the post! Made for AUS/NZ Make My Recipe Tag, November, 2011.
