  1. Dear Aimee, 
    I don’t get caramel bits where I live. So, can I substitute home made caramel or dulce de leche for the bits. And how much will I need to add? Thanks, I can’t wait to make these!

  2. I feel like doctors offices should offer complimentary Starbucks drinks. Goodness knows we all need one after a visit! Salted caramel mochas are amazing, I can only imagine what biting into a fudgy truffle would be like! What a fun finger food dessert!

  3. I have been avoiding the eye doctor for that very reason, but I think it’s time to get the kids in again. Goodbye paycheck!! I’m going to need a venti coffee after that day too! These truffles are seriously amazing…I love how creamy the center is! Salted caramel gets me every.single.time!!!!

  4. Reece wears glasses and I’m thinking Bryce made need them too…hold me! Oh truffles! You make the best ones Aimee! These look divine and I’m totally with you on salted caramel – it’s amazing! Pinned!
