Best Truffles is an exquisite candy recipe, from my Aunt Carol Sue. This recipe was lost for a long time until my sister Laura found it when going through some old correspondence. I love the way the chocolate mixture is beaten until fluffy. That makes the truffles simply melt in your mouth. Be sure to read How to Make Best Truffles before you begin for detailed step by step instructions.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 36-40 truffles or about 2 pounds

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup half and half cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Preparation:

Place chocolate in medium bowl.

In small saucepan, combine heavy cream and light cream; heat until small bubbles form around edges. Do not let cream mixture boil. Immediately pour over chocolate chips.

Stir until smooth and well blended, then add vanilla. Beat with a wire whisk until the mixture is very smooth.

Cover and chill in refrigerator until cold and very thick, about 4 to 5 hours. Then beat with electric mixer until light and rather fluffy. You can refrigerate the mixture again after this step for firmer truffles.

Roll about 2 teaspoon of the mixture into a ball and roll immediately into one of the toppings.

Toppings: Chocolate or white confectioner's coating, melted, or chocolate shot (jimmies), or a sifted combination of cocoa powder, cinnamon, and powdered sugar.

Oh these were so good and so easy! My kids helped roll the truffles, and ate quite a bit in the process. Definitely a must-make recipe!
