      These were excellent and EASY. I am knocking two stars off because the time to make this recipe is NOT 10 minutes (the reason I chose this recipe) and b/c the chilling time of 2 hours is way too long. Unless I am the bionic woman, it is pretty difficult to roll 48 balls in 10 minutes. I did not heed the other warnings about the chilling time and when I pulled the chocolate out of the fridge an hour later, it was pretty hard - too hard to even work with. I left it out on the counter for a bit to dechill. As per someone elses review, I split the chocolate into two batches. One batch I used raspberry extract and the other batch with vanilla. I much prefer the raspberry extract - added such a nice flavor. Then I split each batch again. I took some cherries, cut them into quarters and patted them dry - half of each batch would get a cherry in the center. I rolled a chocolate ball then pushed my finger into the ball to make a crater. I placed a cherry piece into the center, formed the chocolate around the cherry and reshaped the ball. I rolled mine in 6 different coatings: Chocolate sprinkles, cinnamon, powdered sugar, crushed pretzels and finely diced walnuts. To make sure the coatings adhered to the balls, I dipped the ball into the cherry juice and rolled the ball until it was soft and sticky on the outside. Then I plopped the ball into the glass with the topping and swirled it around for a nice coating. It worked perfectly and my balls were perfectly coated. No one could believe that these were homemade. Everyone at the wine tasting party LOVED them and asked for the recipe. Thanks for a great truffle recipe - defintely worth the time and effort. Just modify it to reflect the actual amount of time to make and cut down on the chilling time to maybe 45 minutes if that. Thanks again!

      I halved this recipe,but followed the ingredients and halved amounts as written. Sorry, but I just don't like semi-sweet chocolate, hense the 4 stars. If I make it again (and I'm sure I will) I'll use milk chocolate. I'll update this review when I do, and I'm sure I'll be able to give it 5 stars, not only for personal preference, but for ease of preparation. Thanks for posting.
