Cook's Notes

Decorate truffles by rolling them in cocoa, finely chopped nuts, or sprinkles. For a festive touch, brush them with luster dust, an edible powder available online. Mix colored sugars (or use leftover sugar from your work surface) to create new shades.

    I just had to comment, the amount of cream is not way off for this recipe, as some have said. I made three batches of these using the amount of cream indicated without issue. I didn't use a pie pan to cool the truffles, I used an 8x13 pyrex and it worked great. The one batch I used my 8x8 pyrex needed an extra hour to set. My husband loves them! I made them for wedding favors & he hoped no one would take them so he could eat them all!

    The amount of cream is WAY off - probably should be only 1 cup. Wasted 16 oz of good chocolate. SHAME on you Martha for not checking your recipe amounts. I DO NOT trust your recipes any more.

    Made these truffles for Valentines Day presents. Rolled them in flavored sugars. I think the 1/2 teaspoon salt is a little too much. A tad bit too salty for my tastes. But pretty easy to make.
