Total Time 2 hourshours20 minutesminutes
Carbs (g): 146
3 cupssemi-sweet chocolate chips (18 ounces)
1 cansweetened condensed milk(14 ounce)
Optional, to roll truffles in:
finely chopped nuts
Melt chocolate chips over very low heat. Add the vanilla and sweetened condensed milk and stir until everything is totally blended.
Chill about 2 hours or until the chocolate mixture can be handled.
Shape into 1-inch balls—a melon baller is ideal for this, or you can use a teaspoon. The more you use your hands, the more the chocolate will melt and become a sticky mess.
If desired, roll the balls in coconut, sprinkles, cocoa or nuts. If the weather is over 70 degrees, keep truffles in the refrigerator in a plastic food storage box with a lid until just ready to serve.
You really need a refrigerator or be in a cold climate to make these—they’re just too soft to serve if you store them in a location that’s warm. If you can’t get chocolate chips, you can also make these by melting milk chocolate bars, such as Hershey’s bars.
