The direction on this messed me up a bit but it turned out ok. I read the directions a step at a time and melted all of the chocolate (the white, baking, and semisweet) all together. The directions aren't clear as to which chocolate you use at which time. I coated mine in milk chcolate b/c that's what I had left. they tasted great but clearer directions would be better.
A winner! Delicious! But takes time to make. Next time I would 1/2 recipe unless I was planning on giving as gifts. I served to 18 people and everyone thought they were delicious. Never sawo so many candies go so fast!!!
Incredible! End result was more than I expected! Flavor was wonderful, and truffles were picture perfect! Will experiment w/recipe and diffrent flav's....
