Each day visit the links below and get a new cookie/candy recipe - and!!! If you make them each day you will be totally ready for Christmas.... and probably suffering from Sugar Overload - ha!

My Recipe is for
  Chocolate Truffles



I make these and have to hide them, as everyone in the house digs in - and Poof - like that - they are gone!

So here we go!

Ingredients:
16 Oz Chocolate Chips ( I used 2 2/3 cup of Nestle Tollhouse)
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 cup Butter

2 cups white dipping chocolate or Dark Dipping Chocolate ( I used Ghiradellis)
2 crushes candy canes








Directions:

Melt Butter in a saucepan over medium heat. 

Add in Cream when butter is just about melted


Increase the heat slightly and using a whisk stir constantly, but gently
Heat until mix just barely comes to a boil.















Remove from heat and add in Chocolate Chips


Stir gently - mixing until smooth.

Place entire pan in the fridge for several hours until cooled










Go sew!!







When mix is solid ( mine took about 3 hours)
Scoop out small balls of the mix, shape into little balls and place on Wax or parchment paper on a cookie tray.

I scooped all of mine out, then rolled them - and I worked quick, as they will melt and get sticky.


Place them on the tray, in the freezer for at least an hour

And GO SEW!!

 I decided to dip half of mine in White Chocolate, and half in Dark Chocolate. and since White chocolate is easier for you to see - that is your photographed version.

I melted the white Chips in my small little crock pot 

 Then I lifted each truffle on a fork, rolled it in the chocolate and gently put in back on the tray. Quickly I sprinkled Crushed peppermints on them. If you don't do it right away - the chocolate coating hardens and they won't stick.

I put mine back on the tray and stuck them in the fridge while I worked on Tray 2
 

This is what the inside looks like - and its really really yummy



Each batch makes about 50 truffles and if you are quick enough you may get to eat one or two

Before they are gone!

But if you are really smart you will put some in a ziploc container, label it turkey gizzards,
stash it in the back of the fridge and save it for when you need a little quilting break!

Enjoy checking out the other recipes!!

You always make me smile, Alycia. I love your sense of humor, and I love chocolate, and chocolate truffles! I've never made anything like this, so I look forward to trying these. If I fail completely, I suspect I'll still eat whatever I get. It's chocolate!
