Although this recipe is called Chocolate Truffles there is another recipe named the same however the ingredients are different to this Chocolate Truffles recipe. As you will see this recipe has chocolate as one of the main ingredients and is covered in chocolate. I think the name is more appropriate for this recipe too. There are many variations too, which you will see further down under the Variations Section. I cannot wait to try some of those out either. Anyway although I love the Chocolate Rum Balls and the other Chocolate Truffle recipe, this one is definitely the more decadent of the three. Enjoy!
