Amaretto Cream Truffles
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling
They were pretty easy to make and good, but nothing special. I did use almond extract instead of Amaretto though. Not sure if I'll make again.
These are rich and creamy and decadent. The Amaretto really gives it great flavor. These would be good with Irish cream or some other flavoring also.

MADE THESE FOR THE STORE AND RAY'S FAMILY, STATED THAT THEY WERE ADDICTIVE.
Great recipe! I made some for Christmas gifts and everyone loved them. So easy to make! This is easily one of my favorite recipes on Taste of Home!
Actually make it the lazy man way... I spread mixture on cookie sheet,sprinkle topping over all, and break up like bark. mmmmmm.
I used Hershey's chocolate and people actually though I had used an imported chocolate because it was so creamy, smooth and rich. Best truffles I have ever made.
My husband loved these! Used an extra TBSP of amaretto and a splash of almond extract so increase the nutty flavor - and it turned out wonderfully! I made them on the small side, because they were so rich, and was surprised to find them so simple to make. Will definitely make again!
I made these twice. I gave some of these as a Secret Santa gift the first time - a huge hit. I decreased the amount of creme by 1 T and increased the amount of amaretto by 1 T the second time. Also, I used dark chocolate instead of milk the 2nd time. I'm a huge amaretto and dark chocolate fan so I liked this way better.
I couldn't find milk chocolate baker's chocolate, so I did a batch using white chocolate to substitute for the milk, and I used a macadamia nut liqour, and rolled the truffle in toasted coconut-very yummy! I did another batch using all semisweet chocolate-a disaster! It got too hard and I couldn't roll them. So I had ugly little blobs rolled in the cocoa mixture. They still tasted good though! I only gave this a 4/5 because it was not enjoyable to make. I will probably make them again because they were really good. But they were super messy and irritating to make.
