Addictive Chocolate Truffles


Well, not really addictive, I can stop anytime I want to... Melt in your mouth chocolate truffles that are almost too good to eat. Next time I am going to experiment with a little instant coffee dissolved in hot water for a mocha flavor.

50 truffles


  • cooking spray

  • 12 ounces milk chocolate

  • cup light cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

  • 2 teaspoons shortening


  1. Cover a baking sheet with waxed paper, and spray paper with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Melt milk chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Stir in the cream and vanilla.

  3. Spoon tablespoon-sized scoops of the chocolate mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 30 minutes.

  4. Melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in shortening.

  5. Roll each piece of chilled chocolate into a ball. Use a spoon to dip chocolate balls into the melted chocolate chip mixture. Return truffles to baking sheet, and chill until firm.


Cook's Note:

I like to use a creamy milk chocolate such as Dove(R) or Cadbury Dairy Milk(R) in these tasty truffles.
