Raspberry Truffles

As everyone in my neighborhood knows, Christmas is my very favorite time of year. I make many cookies, cakes and candies - including this easy but elegant recipe - to give to relatives and friends. The aroma of the chocolate and raspberry is heavenly when you're making these truffles. -Helen Vail, Glenside, Pennsylvania
