“This is a super fast and easy recipe that will make your friends and family think you're a professional chocolatier! I plan to try different variations by adding a drop or two of mint or other flavoring or by trying different flavored frostings :-) This recipe will make 20 or so truffles, however I think that next time I make them, I will make them much smaller as one can easily propel you into a chocolate coma! mmmmm.”
