Hi! I absolutely love baking-- especially cookies, cakes, and brownies. I love anything related to chocolate, but I still manage to eat healthy-- thankfully!

"This was an amazing recipe. I have baked cookies, brownies, cake, and more, but this is my first time making candy, and more specifically, my first time making truffles. The result is just as it is said to be-- MARVELOUS! I am sure I didn't use specific measurements, but they were extremely close, which is very important. I didn't have baking chocolate at hand, so I used chocolate chips instead (3 tablespoons per ounce of baking chocolate). I also refrigerated the mix for 45 minutes instead of 15 minutes and stirred every 15 minutes. I used a mini ice cream scoop and shaped each ball after I made the fifteen different scoops. I followed the rest of the recipe according to the directions and added chocolate sprinkles and used the icing recipe as well. I think that this recipe is specific to just one batch, so multiple batches may cause a need for tweaks in the recipe, such as refrigeration time and cooling time. I don't know why others had problems, but experience could help. This is my first time making truffles, and they turned out near-perfect! I also made a video displaying this recipe if anyone wants to see it in action. It is titled 'How To Make Marvellous Chocolate Truffles'. (Yes, 'marvelous' is spelled wrong.) I love this recipe and recommended it to all of my baker friends. When I shared my truffles with my peers, they absolutely adored it and couldn't stop asking for more. I will definitely try this again."
