"Couldn't be easier, with only 3 (2 main) ingredients! My kids enjoyed helping roll and top them and then eat them. I used cocoa powder, colored sugar sprinkles, and matcha drink powder."

"My daughter and I made these for Valentine and found them easy, we used different sprinkles and nuts. Think we will try to use different flavored extract's to change it up."

"I made this as a Student Council representative for my school, and it was a best-seller! After 10 minutes, all the truffles were sold out, and a bunch of people were disappointed they never got a chance to taste them. And hehe it's actually my first time cooking by myself. Took me like 6 hours...But it's worth it. I became my school's hero for a few days :)"

"These are good and easy, just not anything special. I do love the topping ideas--for any kind of truffle."

"I made these last year, and will be making more tomorrow. They are fantastic. I did learn that if your truffles don't hold their shape, you can add a small amount of confectioner's sugar to stiffen them just a bit. Make them small, roll them quickly in the coatings and put them straight back in the fridge UNCOVERED. Once they dry a bit and get a "crust", they hold their shape well."

"These didn't turn out for me at all. Even after hours in the fridge they wouldn't keep their round shape and kept going flat. I had to throw away the whole batch."

"Oh so good!! I added 1 T. peppermint flavor, and the family loved it. Do not recommend using cococut, as it does not stick. Even had trouble getting the sprinkle to stick. But over all, very tasty!"

"These truffles were so quick and easy to make and they added such a beautiful touch to my cookie trays. I also gave them in tins as gifts. This will be a recipe I use regularly. They not only taste good but they look as good as they taste."

"I made these truffles for first time after making some candy jars with painted snowmen on them. I changed the recipe a bit b/c I am not a fan of dark chocolate. I used most milk chocolate and a little bit of semi-sweet. They are delicious and I am planning on making more batches to fill jars but will be using ALL milk chocolate morsels!"
