Yeah, I spent a good afternoon looking for good boxes. I really want those. Those will really show the truffles off nicely.

How many do you need? Their minimum order is $25 and those boxes are $21 for only 4 of them. I really like them too. Very chic and "green" to boot.

I was gonna get them, but the order was like $21, minimum they could process was $25 or something like that, and then they had a processing fee for orders under $50....it was making my head swim!

Here's one recipe I have; I can't attest to how it tastes as I've never used it but I think it's very similar to homemade fondant.

No Cook Fondant

1/3 c. softened butter
1/3 c. light corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
12 tsp. salt
3 1/2 c. powdered sugar

Mix butter, corn syrup, vanilla and salt in large bowl. Add powdered sugar all at once. Mix with a spoon at first, then hands, kneading well. Turn out onto countertop and continue kneading until mixture is well blended and smooth, adding more powdered sugar if necessary. Store the wrapped fondant in an air tight container in a cool place.

To this you can add so many different things for different flavorings.

Maple Nut Center- In one cup of fondant center knead in 1/4 tsp. concentrated maple flavoring, 1/4 c. walnuts, and brown food coloring.

Fruit Center- In 1 c. fondant center knead in 4 tsp. icing fruit or jam.

Vanilla Cream Center- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract to 1 c. fondant center.

Peppermint Cream Center- 5 drops peppermint oil to 1 c. fondant center, add green food color as desired.

French Chocolate Center- 4 oz. melted dark chocolate to 1 c. fondant center.

Cappucino Cream Center- 1/2 tsp. cappucino concentrated flavor to 1 c. fondant center.

I hope this helps!
