I made these for my husband for Valentine's Day and he LOVED them. Boxed them up and they look as good, probably even better than any fancy boxed chocolate (I added pics)! I do not use the egg substitute. I replace the flour with whole wheat flour and usually only use 1 to 1 1/8 cups when I do or it tends to end up dry. They taste just fine without the egg and the only thing I notice different with the whole wheat is the texture. It is a bit grainier, but you can always buy a finer mill of it if that is a problem. :) I left out the nuts because my son won't eat them that way. Oh and I dipped some in white chocolate for variety. I think for St Patrick's day I will make these but use andes mints (chopped small) in place of the mini morsels and use green tinted white choc for covering!
Followed directions exactly, made for Christmas. Refrigerated dough over night and dipped in chocolate next day. Big hit! I did leave the nuts out though!
I took this to a cookie swap and everyone requested the recipe. These are totally worth the effort.
I found this recipe in an old Southern Living Christmas book - they are GREAT! I made them at the last minute and they were THE hit at the holiday dessert table! Thanks for posting!
This recipe rocks! It's sticky to roll but it does work! and it's a crowd pleaser!
Followed this exactly but it just didn't work. Some didn't even hold up. It wasn't quite inedible but these are not what truffles are to me. I thought they were easy to make, but I guess that was too good to be true. I will try another recipe, thanks anyway.
