Make Your Own.............Truffles!
These were so easy! I actually took this recipe, split the can of sweetened condensed milk into 2 parts, and used 2 different 10 oz bags to make 2 different types of truffle...1 one mint chocolate coated with cocoa, the other white chocolate coated with coconut, which I dyed red & green..pretty!
3 cups (18 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips or whatever flavor you like
1 (14 oz.) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract or whatever flavor you like
Finely chopped toasted nuts, flaked coconut, chocolate sprinkles, colored sprinkles, unsweetened cocoa, powdered sugar or colored sugars
MELT chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk in large saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
POUR into medium bowl. Cover and chill 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
SHAPE into 1-inch balls; roll in desired coating and/or decorate with frosting and candies. Chill 1 hour or until firm.
