Reviews for Mint Truffles
"What is used for the whipped topping? Cool Whip, or Dream whip?"
"I really liked the texture of these truffles. I would do without the cocoa next time. It was a bit strong for my taste. I will try coating them in dark chocolate"
"This is a wonderful recipe! I doubled the recipe and it was part of my "goodie" can Christmas treats to friends. Everyone loved these truffles and was the most asked for recipe in all of my Christmas "goodie" cans. This ones a keeper!"
"I have made this super yummy, lucious recipe many times in the past ten years. It is often requested and never lasts long. Good thing they are so easy!"
