A Yummy Christmas - Chocolate Truffles

Easy TrufflesHere is another delicious YET easy "yummy" to make with your kids over the holidays.  Most of the ideas are from pinterest :)
We all want to bring the "killer dessert" for the boss's Christmas present. Here it is: easy and so GOOD! This is from parnellspantry. Thank you Parnell!

 Traditionally,truffles are made by melting cream and chocolate together,and adding a variety of flavors.In this recipe,sweetened condensed milk is used instead,and it makes a sweet,rich truffle.The mixture may be made ahead of time,making it a great treat for entertaining,or even gift giving.The truffles keep well in the refrigerator for at least a week.

 What you need...
18 oz. chocolate chips(semi-sweet or milk,or a combination,it's your choice)
1 14oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
optional toppings such as sprinkles,nuts,coconut,etc.

What you do...
  1.  In a double boiler,melt the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk,stirring occasionally until smooth.
  2. Let the mixture cool,then refrigerate for at least one hour.
  3. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator,and roll into balls.
  4. Immediately roll into your topping of choice.If not serving immediately,keep refrigerated.
***Again,the chocolate mixture may be melted using a microwave,but I prefer a double boiler.
***I used a few drops of green food coloring to make the coconut a light shade of green.
