      If I could rate this "10 stars" - I WOULD! Honestly, when I read the list of ingredients, I laughed. I thought that those ingredients could no way create a great tasting truffle. I prepared this recipe on a dare. Well I was WRONG.

      OMG! This IS FANTASTIC. Vegans and NON VEGANS - LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS RECIPE. Its because of the ratings I dared to try it. Silky smooth texture and rich rich flavor. I used semi-sweet chips which were the perfect taste combo for me. BTW if you don't own a scale - 1lb of chocolate chips = 2 2/3 cups ( according to Hershey). That helped since most bags come in 12oz portions. Thanks for this recipe!

      brilliant! So quick, so easy, so delicious! And you can put flavourings in to change it. We have done rum, coffee and vanilla. All non vegans loved them too. You do have to warn people about nuts though.

      these are absolutely amazing! i like to cover them in chocolate and white chocolate and let them solidify in little glassine candy cups. (makes them look fancy) i used to freeze the truffles to make them easier to dip in the chocolate, but it apparently makes the truffle concoction contract. and then when they come back to room temperature, the filling will ooze out of any holes or thin areas of the coating. oops! hehe. i must have made these 5 times already, and they're always perfect!
