Easy Chocolate Truffles only use 4 ingredients, including sweetened condensed milk, to make a rich, decadent dessert. Roll them in chocolate sprinkles, powdered sugar or cocoa for the the finished touch!
In a heavy saucepan combine sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon butter. Melt over low heat, stirring constantly.
Continue to heat over low-medium heat until thick and glossy. Be patient, chocolate needs to be heated gradually. If you increase the heat to speed things up you can end up with lumpy, burnt chocolate. Heating process will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Chocolate will be thick and start to easily peel away from the sides of your saucepan.
Coat a glass baking dish or pie plate with cooking spray. Spread the hot chocolate mixture into the bottom and allow to cool to room temperture.
Place the ingredients you plan to roll your truffles in into small bowls nearby.
Using your hands, form into 1 1/2 inch balls and immediately roll in sprinkles, cocoa or powdered sugar. You might have to pack down the sprinkles a little, they don't tend to stick as well.
Truffles can be stored in the refrigerator, but will get pretty hard, so give them time to come up to room temperture before serving.
