Reviews for Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles
"So quick and easy to make and very elegant to serve and give as a gift. Thank you!!"
"I didn't use whole hazelnuts but it didn't take away from how yummy and easy to make these truffles are. Gave them out as gifts for my dinner guests during the holidays."
"Decadent and rich! I took out the hazelnut inside, but it was still fantastic. Giving these as Christmas gifts this year."
"GREAT RECIPE. I DID MODIFY IT THE SECOND TIME I MADE IT THOUGH, AND ELIMINATED THE HAZELNUTS INSIDE, AND ADDED ORANGE EXTRACT TO THE MIXTURE. A HUGE HIT!!BRENDA SUTTERHOUSE SPRINGS, MO."
"Can a healthier dark chocolate be substituted for the milk chocolate?"
