Get a jump on the holidays by making these 4-ingredient truffles and tucking them away in the freezer for gift giving. For an extra-special touch, I like to present them in mini cupcake holders.—Amanda Triff, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

"I think there may be something wrong with the measurements on this recipe. I made it exactly as described and the result was chocolate soup. I crushed the remaining wafers from the package, added them, and then it was the consistency of stew. Will try to salvage the recipe by adding even more wafers. Did anyone else have this problem? Did you have to adjust the liquid when you made it?"

"Forgot to sign my name to my OMG review. It's Gwen - or luvtopolka. Also, I saw the question about jimmies. I, too, couldn't find them, but used multi-colored candy sprinkles instead. luvtopolka"

"OMG!!! These are THE BEST! Everyone who tastes them loves them! So easy, too! What a hit with very little effort! The only "hard" part is rolling them in jimmies."

What are chocolate wafers?
Chocolate wafers are chocolate cookies - find them in with the cookies and snacks at your favorite grocery store."
