"The flavor was very good. But upon removing them from the fridge, they were so hard we couldn't roll them into balls. We let them sit at room temperature and they were still very hard to roll, but we did manage it. Next time I will roll into balls and then chill."

"These are insanely delicious and RICH! They are absolutely delicious but one or two is plenty for one person as they are so rich in dark chocolate flavor. I would make them again but only for a large group of people."

"These are a chocolate lovers dream!! And they are so quick and easy. I gave them as Christmas gifts. Different flavors of extract can be used to give a variety."

"These were good and definitely easy to make. Mine were a little soft even after chilling so I just used a little less heavy whipping cream the next time I made them. I also used 1 T of flavored liqueurs instead of the extract for the subsequent batches. I used rum, Sambuca, and Cointreau. I rolled them in colored sugar that I use for sugar cookies. They were a big hit and fun to make and eat."

"At first I didn't think that these would take shape. I left the mixture in the fridge a while longer and it was firm enough to roll into balls."
