  2. Making some with cafe latte flavored Greek yogurt for mocha truffles. I bet raspberry yogurt would be good, too. :-)

  3. I'm a little nervous about raw egg yolks. Seems like they would have a pretty short shelf life, too. Could you suggest a substitute?

    1. there is a product called "Egg Replacer" that works well, I think its arrowroot. You can usually get it at Health Food Stores, or online.
