Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



For whatever reason the evaporated milk and sugar didn't boil properly so the chocolate seized a bit and didn't set properly. Wouldn't bother with this recipe again.

Very versatile recipe

I had a truffle recipe using sweetened condensed milk, but this is better since I have evaporated milk in my cupboard more frequently. These are easy to make and taste very rich (I prefer the vanilla to the almond extract). I have also left these overnight in the refrigerator, then dipped in melted Nestle white or semi-sweet chocolate for an additional taste/texture. Really great!

Easy and Fun!

I made these for my superbowl party and they were a hit! Everyone was eating them more than anything else! Good thing I made two batches or my Dad's friends would have went crazy! One thing you don't want 20 is hungry die hard football fans!

Simple and Delicious

Made these for my SuperBowl Party and they were a Huge hit! All of my girlfriends have asked for the recipe. I made black and white truffles using white nestle chips and Grand Marnier. YUMMY.
