Like the other reviewer, it wouldn't quite set up for me. I put it back on the stove and added the rest of the package of chips to it. That did the trick. It made perfect truffles.

I was really excited about this recipe because it looks so easy. I followed the directions and after 4 hours of letting the mixture chill it was still very gooey so I let it sit in the fridge overnight. Even then It was still sticky and gooey but I thought I would try to dip them in the nuts anyway and they stayed in a ball for a bit but then they turned into pancakes. I even placed them on a chilled platter. I tried to add flower and more cocoa to firm it up but that did not work. So sad this did not work out because it tastes good but just wont firm up into a truffle ball!
