Reviews for Amaretto Cream Truffles
"They were pretty easy to make and good, but nothing special. I did use almond extract instead of Amaretto though. Not sure if I'll make again."
"These are rich and creamy and decadent. The Amaretto really gives it great flavor. These would be good with Irish cream or some other flavoring also."
"MADE THESE FOR THE STORE AND RAY'S FAMILY, STATED THAT THEY WERE ADDICTIVE."
