Chocolate Mint Truffles

Chocolate Mint TrufflesWrapped in a festive package, these creamy delights will be a hit around the holidays. But save a few for yourself—you won't be able to resist!

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (11.5-ounce) package NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels, (2 cups)
1 (6-ounce) package NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, (1 cup)
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon peppermint extract
1 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts, toasted

Cooking Directions:

  1. Line baking sheet with waxed paper.
  2. Place milk chocolate and semi-sweet morsels in large mixer bowl. Heat cream to a gentle boil in small saucepan; pour over morsels. Let stand for 1 minute; stir until smooth. Stir in peppermint extract. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for 35 to 45 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir just until color lightens slightly. (Do not over mix or truffles will be grainy.)
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet; refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes. Shape into balls; roll in walnuts (or NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa). Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Makes 48 Truffles.

Variation: After rolling chocolate mixture into balls, freeze for 30 to 40 minutes. Microwave 2 cups (11.5-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels and 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Dip truffles into chocolate mixture; shake off excess. Place on foil-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
