Make It! Monday

Today I’m sharing a recipe for one of my favorite Christmas treats. I’m actually making some later on, for tomorrow there is to be a party and goodie exchange at my house.

Chocolate Truffles
(from Taste of Home)
3 cups (18 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
chopped flake coconut, sprinkles, baking cocoa,
and/or finely chopped nuts, optional

In a microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate chips and milk at 50 % power until chocolate is melted. Stir in vanilla. Chill for 2 hours or until mixture is easy to handle. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll in coconut, sprinkles, cocoa, or nuts if desired. Yield: about 4 dozen.
