Easy Decadent Truffles

Easy Decadent Truffles created by Pismo

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.

    3 cups of powdered sugar makes the truffles too sweet, so add one cup of powdered sugar. if it isn't too sweet then you can add more.

    Omit the vanilla and add 1 tablespoon of your favorite liquor. Amaretto, good rolled in almonds. Cointreau rolled in cocoa. Chambord rolled in coconut. Frangelica is good too. An hour is too long to chill the chocolate mixture.. toppings won't stick. If it gets too hard, microwave for 10-15 seconds

    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. <br/><br/>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.

    These are so easy and they come out perfect. I bought some gold candy wrappers and gave them to my coworkers as gifts. They thought I had bought them! I can't believe they don't have more reviews!

    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.
