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...
- In a double boiler,melt the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk,stirring occasionally until smooth.
- Let the mixture cool,then refrigerate for at least one hour.
- Remove the mixture from the refrigerator,and roll into balls.
- 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.
