    Mama Schmid's Note:

    These are awesome and perfect for holiday gift giving. I've taken two batches into my newsroom and my staff has wiped them out. They are eas but very rich and delicious. Coconut flavored ones rolled in coconut and raspberry flavored ones rolled in cocoa are our favorites so far. I found the recipe in Albertson's new magazine — Easy.

      These are so excellent that I cannot make them fast enough for my family, nor work. I roll them into balls and then immediately roll into chosen topping to be sure they coat and stick. Our fave toppings are nuts, sprinkles and drizzled in white chocolate.

      I also tried an oreo truffle recipe from this site, but could not compare to the rich flavor of this recipe and so easy to make.

      Easy. Decadent. Heavenly...I am so glad I gave these a try! I only made a half batch to test for a shower I'm throwing, and I couldn't stop eating them. I used flavor oils instead of vanilla, and the butter rum and strawberry ones were the best. I could not taste the cream cheese flavor (I used 1/3 less fat and they were fantastic), they were just so rich and wonderful. I had a little trouble getting pecans to stick, coconut as well, the best coating is the classic--cocoa powder. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

      Very Yummy! I made coconut flavor with pecan topping, orange flavor with chocolate sprinkles, and peppermint with crushed starlight mints. I couldn't stop eating them! So easy to make! Thanks!
