This is a recipe I was taught in culinary school; the whole class had to make them for christmas and we sold them to the public- they were a hit! It was so much fun to make! We did plain truffles, vanilla truffles, and many other different flavors using different types of liquor! This is just a simple recipe- you can decorate your truffles any way you like, there is no right or wrong way- so you can be simple, or you ca be creative! So many possibility's- so little time! It does get messy, so don't be afraid to change your gloves to keep the truffles cleaner. I like to make these on a day where there isn't much else going on- you don't want to be interrupted, it is alot of fun decorating these- and eating them as well!
