    My daughter in law and I made these for Christmas. She loves chocolate and mint so we thought we’d gives this a try. I was a bit confused about the whipped topping but followed the recipe exactly. I used a generic of cool whip. I figured it would melt when I stirred it into the chocolate but it didn’t. It did change the texture to something amazing. We dipped them in melted vanilla bark that we added a few drops if green food coloring and sprinkled them with crushed can’t canes. They look amazing and taste even better. Try these-you will love them.

    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
