None of us can resist smooth, creamy chocolate truffles in candy shops. You can easily make them at home. Make sure you use high quality chocolate chips & pure vanilla. You can also add other flavorings as well. Roll the truffles in chopped nuts, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, toasted coconut……. well, you get the idea!


1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon pure vanilla or add other flavorings
Chopped nuts or other
Combine the heavy cream, sugar, and butter in a small saucepan; bring just to boil. Remove from heat; immediately add chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted; add vanilla. Pour into bowl. Cool, stirring occasionally, until chocolate begins to set. Cover and chill in refrigerator several hours. Form mixture into balls of desired size, working quickly to prevent melting. Roll in chopped nuts. Store in refrigerator or freezer until serving time.
