I'm cleaning out a friend's cupboards and found this recipe in a 2003 Kraft What's Cooking magazine. These sound fun and festive for the holidays (still months away), so I thought I'd post it in the hopes that I'd remember to try them. A serving, according to the magazine, is two truffles and five crackers. Cooking time is refrigeration time.
