Yum! I am a fan of truffles ! Almonds are so good for you! And butter is far superior to cotton seed oil and margarine. But semi-sweet choclate is in a healthy food group by itself. I say give up the m and Ma's, eat truffles !

Oh, you are SOOOOOOOOOOO Bad!!!! These sound wonderful! Wonder if you could make some with BAILEY"S??? Do you think the cream in the bailey's would hurt? I'm gonna try, BUTTER has cream, RIGHT! Have to put baileys on the list (right next to the VODKA!!!!) (:(:(:
