RECIPE: looking for classic chocolate truffle receipe

Does anyone have a classic chocolate truffle receipe using heavy cream? I have seen some that use evaporated milk, but I understand they don't have that "melt-in-your-mouth feel.
I want to make some gifts for my office workers, and want package them in pretty satin covered boxes that I seen for a buck in Michaels Arts and Crafts store.
Thanks

Here's Alton Brown's recipe...about as classic as it gets.

I made these for a chocoholic friend's birthday & she loved them. Bookmark this site as I've never had a bad recipe from it.

Oh my, they both sound good. I have no doubt that Alton's recipe is incredibly delicious (being that it is Alton's recipe and the number of 5-star reviews at the site), and the one at the site Ginger posted sounds very good too. Ginger, I've been to that site a number of times and finally bookmarked it this time. Every recipe there looks wonderful.

Thank you Lindac and ginger, I printed them out, they sound exactly what I am looking for! I will do one set in the bittersweet and one set in the semi sweet chocolate, I think this will be a yummy Christmas gift.

Wow! I love the recipes. I was searching for truffle recipes and these are great. My daughter and I are thinking about starting a small chocolate candy biz and are looking for ideas.

Here is a great quick recipe we use.

Crush 1 package of Oreo cookies in the food processer.
Soften 1 8 oz package of cream cheese and add to cookies.
Roll into balls and refrigerate for about an hour.
Temper milk or dark chocolate and dip.
Let cool and keep stored in refrigerator.
They can also be rolled in cocoa, powdered sugar,chopped nuts,coconut, etc.
