I had to make a diabetic dessert for a potluck at my husband's office, and this definitely fit the bill. I didn't have any nuts, so those were omitted, but I could see them enhancing the flavor. I had never made truffles before, so I wasn't sure they would set up, but they worked out just fine. As an extra touch, I scooped them out of the pan with an ice cream scoop, rolled them in cocoa powder, and placed them in mini muffin papers. So cute and delicious to boot! Thanks.

This recipe fills two requirements for me. One is that Im diabetic and love sweets, and two, where I live in Costa Rica, It is impossible to find chocolate chips. I made this last night, I had to substitute cocoa for the unsweetened chocolate (found a substitution on-line)and it worked, came out sort of semi-sweet which was great because now I have a substitute for chocolate chips and can eat this wonderful Chocolate and can use it to make other recipes. Thank You very much Nana Lee although I dont suspect you had me in mind when you posted.

These are very nice, easy truffles! I had a bit of a hard time to get the sweetener melted - not sure if this was because I used xylitol (splenda is difficult to get and extremely expensive in Germany), but as both usually act like normal sugar it should not have been a problem. Actually after some minutes of stirring the xylitol dissolved and I could proceed. For the chocolat I used organic arriba cocoa mass. Thanks for posting this nice recipe!
