When I made these, my kids told me they liked the “fudge” I made so that is a win. I did find they got hard if left out for a bit.

@ putterh..........are you sure you used "condensed" milk? There is a big big difference between condensed milk and canned milk (even though they both come in a can). It sounds like perhaps that was your mistake. I made these last Christmas and they were so easy and delicious. Plan on making a double batch this year for the holidays as I want to give some to friends and some neighbors. Thank you for a great recipe.

These are amazing! I made one batch with dark chocolate chips and almond flavoring rolled in chocolate sprinkles, another one with milk chocolate chips and vanilla rolled in cocoa. The possibilities are endless!

Couldn't be easier, with only 3 (2 main) ingredients! My kids enjoyed helping roll and top them and then eat them. I used cocoa powder, colored sugar sprinkles, and matcha drink powder.

My daughter and I made these for Valentine and found them easy, we used different sprinkles and nuts. Think we will try to use different flavored extract's to change it up.

I made this as a Student Council representative for my school, and it was a best-seller! After 10 minutes, all the truffles were sold out, and a bunch of people were disappointed they never got a chance to taste them. And hehe it's actually my first time cooking by myself. Took me like 6 hours...But it's worth it. I became my school's hero for a few days :)

These are good and easy, just not anything special. I do love the topping ideas--for any kind of truffle.

I made these last year, and will be making more tomorrow. They are fantastic. I did learn that if your truffles don't hold their shape, you can add a small amount of confectioner's sugar to stiffen them just a bit. Make them small, roll them quickly in the coatings and put them straight back in the fridge UNCOVERED. Once they dry a bit and get a "crust", they hold their shape well.

These didn't turn out for me at all. Even after hours in the fridge they wouldn't keep their round shape and kept going flat. I had to throw away the whole batch.
