Chocolate Truffles

These simple, yet rich homemade candies are every bit as delicious as truffles from a high-priced candy store. You can enjoy them any day or show someone you care about them with a gift from the heart and your kitchen! Alan's Kitchen makes it easy.

Makes about 6 dozen trufflesRecipes from AlansKitchen.com

Prep Time: 10 min.
Cooking Time: 5 min.
Chilling Time: 4 hrs.

Ingredients:

  • 3  cups (18 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1  can (14-ounce) 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
    • colored sugars

Candy Recipe Directions:

1) In large saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips with Sweetened Condensed Milk.

2) Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Pour into medium bowl.

3) Cover and chill 2 to 3 hours or until firm.

4) Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in desired coating and/or decorate with frosting and candies.

5) Chill 1 hour or until firm. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.

Alan's Kitchen Tip: 

  • Place individual chocolate truffles into gold/silver foil candy wrappers or arrange on a tray for a decadent dessert presentation. Or serve individual truffles with a cup of coffee after dinner as a mini chocolate treat
  • Other Ideas: Truffles make a great homemade gift to give to friends and co-workers to simply say "thank you." Arrange several decorated truffles in a pretty box or other tin/basket lined with colorful wax or gift paper. Wrap with a bow. Note: re-usable tins are a nice keepsake after the truffles are gone.
