Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have made these several times now, and they're a big hit as gifts as they look really special. I have made these several times now, and they're a big hit as gifts as they look really special. I did have a lot of trouble rolling them at first [especially as I hate to have my hands messy]. However, I finally, after trying several of the other respondants suggestions, hit upon this solution which works very well. I sprayed one hand with "Bakers Joy" baking spray, and then rubbed the inside surface of my hands together. I was then able to roll the balls without the dough sticking to my hands. If you're making a lot, you may have to wash it off in between batches and spray again. Enjoy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Wow! These were excellent. I made them for our Christmas Open House and they were the hit of the dessert table. Everyone raved about them. I used powdered sugar, pecans, toasted coconut, and crushed Oreo cookies as toppings. I used an ice cream scoop to shape them and did not have the goopy hand problem mentioned in earlier reviews. I also refrigerated the mixture overnight before shaping. I was suprised how well they held up on the dessert table (did not melt or disform). I think I will make them for gifts next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made these truffles for Thanksgiving and am planning on making them again for Christmas. I made these truffles for Thanksgiving and am planning on making them again for Christmas. I rolled some in unsweetened baking chocolate, very awesome, and others in a variety of crushed nuts, including pistacios. I also used sprinkles on some. My familys' favorite, however, was the crushed candy cane coating. These are quite messy to make. Just remember to wash your hands about every three or four truffles. This is a wonderful and inexpensive treat. Great for the holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RAVE REVIEWS by everyone who tried them! RAVE REVIEWS by everyone who tried them! I made this recipe with a few changes. I used 12-oz. bag of good semi-sweet morsels instead of bakers chocolate in the mix and I poured the mix into a foil-lined 8 x 8 pan and then chilled. Cut into squares and dipped one side in different toppings: chopped nuts, decorative sprinkles, coconut, cocoa - my fave!, powdered sugar. Limited mess work! The assortment makes a nice presentation on a holiday plate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A+ for taste but whatever I did these never got firm they were mush balls or choc. A+ for taste but whatever I did these never got firm they were mush balls or choc. moose!!! I left the mix in the fridge for way over and hour and was still mush. Thought with such few ingredients this should have been a fool proof truffle recipe...not sure what i am going to to with these... they won't work for gifts. I did make the simply sensational truffles and they turned out great!! Looks like i will have to make another batch of those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Everyone loves them. I often make them for parties and holidays. They also make a great gift. They don't last long. Sprinkles are the preferred topping. I usually scoop out some and put the bowl back in the fridge while I roll them into balls and in the sprinkles. They are easiest to work with when cold. It can help to run hands under cold water also so they don't melt as quickly while rolling them.

This is the second year I have made them for Christmas, my tip with helping to roll the balls in your hands...have a spray can of oil such as Pam next to you and spray the palms of your hand in between rolls, put a clump of chocolate mixture directly on your palms instead of your fingers, reduces the stickiness tremendously! I also roll them in red sugar which is bright and cheery.

You really can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. For a time saver I bought sundae toppings to roll the truffles in. They have all different mixtures with cookie pieces, sprinkles, and mini chocolate or peanut butter chips. These were so easy I cannot wait to make them again!!
