These truffles accompanied the more traditional cookie dough truffles to the American themed pot luck dinner we went to the other week. Mel stumbled across the idea here, and passed it on to me to adapt when she heard about the dinner. They look good huh?! Well, it gets better, they are hiding something from you… every truffle has a rolo in the middle, deliciously wicked!
