This comes from the new Taste of Home. Haven't tried them yet, but want to post them to save the recipe on Zaar!! I love truffles, so will be making them for my gift trays this season. Cooking/prep times are approximate due to chilling, etc.

I love the Caramel it is DELICIOUS! One problem I had was I used waxed paper to line the dish for it to set up; BAD IDEA! I'm going to make again and this time I will use the plastic wrap as the directions say. I think it will work better. Thanks for the recipe! This is now one of my favorites!
