Give The Gift of Something Sweet – Christmas Truffles

Homemade Christmas Truffles

Since I was a child my family has always made homemade Christmas Truffles to give as gifts to our family and friends over the holiday season. This is a tradition that has lived to now be passed down to my 3 children.

Last weekend we got together with my family and made a few hundred of this yummy little treats! This is how my family comes together and starts the holiday season each year. This is one of my fondest memories as a child, spending time with my mother and sisters and just letting the hustle and bustle of the season behind us.

These are a perfect gift to give to your family, friends, mailman, teachers, doctor, co-workers, or even a nice hostess gift if you have a party you may be attending over the season.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla
  • a variety of sprinkles (for covering)
  • icing sugar (for covering)
  • coconut (for covering)
  • cocoa (for covering)

Truffles

Instructions:

Put 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 can of condensed milk and 1 tsp of vanilla into a glass/microwave safe bowl

Mix until chocolate chips are covered

Place in the microwave for 1 minute

Remove from microwave and stir mixture until all the chocolate chips are melted (reheat 30 seconds if needed)

Place in freezer for 2 – 4 hours to let harden

Remove from freezer and let get to room temperature (This makes it a lot easier on your hand.)

While you wait for your mixture to warm up you can prepare the sprinkles in different bowls

Our Sprinkle Station

Once mixture is ready you can scoop out a piece of chocolate to your desired size, roll into a ball in your hands and cover in your desired sprinkle covering

Place in a mini baking cup and you are done

We either pack these up in little bags or tins from the dollar store, wrap with a ribbon and then you have a nice holiday sweet treat to give.

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
