These truffles go together so easily! The hardest part is waiting for the chocolate to set up so you can scoop it.
If you’re giving these truffles as a gift I recommend having some pretty papers at the ready.
I always like to melt chocolate in a diy double boiler. Just put a large glass or metal bowl over (not in) simmering water. This lets the chocolate melt slowly and evenly and I don’t have to worry about the chocolate scorching or seizing.
And I can scoop the truffles right from the same bowl.
If you don’t have a suitable bowl, you can melt the chocolate mixture in a pan over very low heat. Then you’ll need to pour it into something to cool.
So…place the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in the bowl…
…and stir it occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
Remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Cover it with some plastic wrap and chill it for 2-3 hours. It needs to be firm enough to roll into a ball, but not so hard that you can’t scoop it..
While the chocolate is setting up, get your coatings ready. I’m using holiday sprinkles, powdered sugar, cocoa, and chopped nuts. I had a lot of sprinkles left over from my Christmas Confetti Cake Mix Cookies. Crushed candy canes would be cute, too.
When the chocolate mixture is set, scoop and roll into 1 inch balls (I like to use my cookie scoop) and drop into your coatings. Roll it around until it’s coated.
Put them in some cute holiday mini muffin papers and they’re ready for gifting!
Aren’t they adorable?! Who wouldn’t want to get some of these in a goodie basket?!
BTW, I got 42 truffles from this recipe but I got a little carried away and rolled some of them pretty big. You may get more.
