“Easy and delicious truffles. I got this recipe somewhere online (do not remember where but it could possibly be a Baker's brand recipe). I adjusted this recipe to my tastes and wanted to share the results. These can be altered in a variety of ways to make different flavors to suit you and your family. Some ideas for the semi sweet chocolate chips you could apply are: use milk chocolate chips, Andes mint pieces, peanut butter swirl, etc. for variety. For the extracts you could use: orange (that's my favorite), mint, raspberry, etc. I roll mine in pecans and have also rolled them in coconut that I rubbed into orange extract (for the choc/orange flavor). The options are many. Just play around with it. A food processor can be used to make this recipe as well.”
