Not sure how to make truffles? No worries – this truffles recipe is simple enough, and tastes incredible.
Makes 5 dozen
2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate morsels
1 cup finely chopped pecans or other nut
12 ounces chocolate, melted
1 tablespoon corn syrup
In a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels and pecans, mixing well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper; chill 2 hours. Note* The dough is sticky so coat your hands in flour to help them roll into smooth balls.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler, slowly. Do not overheat the chocolate while melting or it will burn and clump together. Add the corn syrup and mix well. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into the chocolate coating to cover. Place on waxed paper and chill to set. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
