Cook's Notes

To make sure the chocolate does not melt, work with a few truffles at a time (keeping the rest refrigerated), and roll them in the nuts quickly. Chilling the chocolate mounds for a half hour makes it easier to shape them into balls. The truffles soften quickly, so keep them in the refrigerator until just before serving.

    Not worth the trouble. There are too many other good easty truffle recipes and these are just to messy.

    jammiejulie - What is the texture of these when they're ready to eat? Are they hard like chocolate candy or soft like a traditional truffle?

    These were 1 of the cookies I made for a friend who was having an open house at her store. Instead of Bourbon I used Bailey's Irish Cream--they were delicious and a big hit! Jamielen--I wonder what happened. It shouldn't take long for the dough to become firm. I've made these several times and although messy when I roll them, they do form a ball quite easily. I did run my hands under cold water several times while rolling them.

    I thought these were terrible. Immediately out of the fridge (after overnight) they were a gooey mess that wouldn't form a ball at all.
