    Surprised there is no butter in this recipe. Hmmm, we'll see how it turns out.

    Apparently someone left out one major ingredient because the mixture never set up even putting it in the freezer overnight. Very, very messy...

    I tried to make these for New Year's Eve dessert. Although the chocolate tasted great, it never got firm enough to make balls. I ended up putting it all in the freezer to get it to chill down. If I make this again, I will make one day ahead of time, and let sit overnight.

    For a non-alcoholic version, would it work to substitue rum/brandy flavoring and sparkling apple cider?

    When I make Truffles, I usually let the chocolate cool for a full day (24hrs) before rolling it into balls.

    Also, add the 1 tbls Cognac first, stir it in, then sprinkle in the Champagne to get the consistency. You can cut back on the liquid, a bit.

    I wouldn't think they would need to be frozen with the amount of alcohol in them. Interesting that one person had trouble with the recipe and one didn't. If they are too soft to ball, chill for a few minutes, but only a few minutes. Then ball them. Per the recipe, you do not add the choc to the cream, but use separate bowls so it doesn't get overheated. The pan the cream is in will be too hot, and will keep the heat, so use separate bowl on the counter.

    Can these truffles be frozen in order to keep longer?
