"I made these little cuties for a Christmas potluck at work. They were an absolute hit! Everyone kept commenting on how adorable they were. The truffles were a bit tricky at first, but once I got into a routine they were easy to assemble. I used gold dragees for the eyes, which were cute. I also substituted finely crushed chocolate animal crackers for the wafer coating. The taste of the truffles were good, but I think I might add an extract for more "oomph" next time. Maybe mint, orange, almond, etc. Thanks for sharing this adorable recipe!"
