"My 1st attempt with truffles made with cream and they turned out fabulous! They are melt in your mouth goodness. I tried rolling them in several ingredients, coconut, sprinkles & unsweetened cocoa, but the nut/chocolate coating beat them all out hands down. Thanks DeAnn!"

"This recipe is spot-on wonderful. So many people enjoy the conveniance of truffles made with cream cheese or the like but there is nothing like the silky goodness of a truffle made with heavy cream. Mmm!! Yummy! Thank you for posting!!"
