    1 pound chocolate, chopped
    2/3 cup heavy whipping cream

    I have made these several times. I use dark chocolate chips, fat free evaporated milk and a variety of alcohol depending on the holiday I am making them for. Thanks for the recipe. Everything in moderation! - 4/18/11

    I agree with Karolab-traditional truffles(this is a traditional recipe-its not slimmed down!) are no where near good for you. the seving size here is TINY! you can use half and half,or even soy milk, but you may need abit more choc. try using dark choc or sugar-free choc to cut calories even more - 12/14/08

  • sounds amazing but very fattening,,, can you use half and half or will that make it too thin? - 12/14/08

  • This sounds awesome. All of my favorite ingredients mixed together and so simple. I can't wait to make it. One question - you did not say what type of chocolate to use. Should it be dark, special cooking chocolate or does it matter? - 12/14/08
