Chocolate Truffles



My dear friend Naise, sent me the recipe for these delicious and simple to make truffles during Christmas week. I found I already had everything I needed in the cabine so Savannah and I made these on Christmas Eve. We used several different things to roll them in from the decorative sprinkles you can get in the baking section of the grocery store to coconut, chopped nuts and colored sugars.

Everyone here loved them, especially Mama :)

Naise said she tried a variation of ingredients giving hers a peppermint flavor. That's something I want to try next time because I love the combination of chocolate and mint.



3 cups (18 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Coatings: Finely chopped toasted nuts, flaked coconut, chocolate sprinkles, colored sprinkles, unsweetened cocoa, confectioners' sugar or colored sugars

In large saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips with EAGLE BRAND®. 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. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
