Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (350 g) packages semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (300 ml) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 (225 g) packagemilk chocolate-covered caramel candies (I use Rollos or regular caramels cut in half)

  1. Melt semi-sweet chips and sweetened condensed milk over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Chill 2 hours. Shape into small balls around Chocolate covered Caramels, about 1 inch diameter.
  4. Chill balls about 1 hour or until firm. Melt chips and shortening together, stirring until smooth. Dip truffle balls, one at a time into melted chocolate to cover completely.
  5. Gently shake off excess coating. Place on waxed paper-covered tray. If desired sprinkle some truffles with chopped nuts immediately after dipping.
  6. Let stand or refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes. If desired, drizzle some truffles with melted chocolate from a spoon or icing bag to decorate. Store loosely covered in a cool dry place up to 2 months.
