Truffles

Melt-in-your-mouth heaven!
Got this at a recipe exchange pot luck...and they are sooo good! I had fun with the flavorings, and stumbled upon some unique favorites.

Make up some different flavors for indulgently special holiday gifts! A box of chocolates this tasty, homemade, in tantalizing flavors, is really a spectacular gift. It's fun when there are some traditional favorite flavors (like peppermint or plain chocolate) along with a few adventurous ones (like hungarian paprika, or the lemon flavored dipped in ground coriander & powdered sugar, which is my personal favorite!)
