    These aren't your typical truffles! They're hard on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. Makes 5 dozen, so great to give as food gifts!

    These didn't turn out AT ALL like described, and with 400g ground almonds in you could taste nothing else. Are the quantities in this recipe right?  -  11 Dec 2013

    This recipe is awesome! For my French class, the final was to make a recipe and then do other work showing how to make it, etc. I chose this recipe and my class loved it. I didn't use almonds, however. Instead, I used crushed cinnamon graham crackers. Believe me, it is a great alternative to use rather than the traditional almonds.  -  15 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I made these for my French class, and they were a big success. I would recommend using a food processor for the almonds and the chocolate. It's a huge time saver and it's really easy. I just used a small one that attached to my blender, so you don't need a big fancy one. Also, when you bake them, don't use a convection overn. I did, and my cookies didn't turn out as crunchy as I had hoped. This is a great recipe, I'm definately making these again!  -  20 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
