READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Realtor by day

Yummy! Truffles with little balls of carmel in the center! What could be better than that? Be sure to allow the 3+ hours needed to chill them during the different stages.

I knew going in that the prep time would be much more than just 5 minutes ~ Took me much longer than that to roll, dip & coat that many, but it was definitely worth it ~ These are WONDERFUL! I ended up dividing them into thirds, keeping 1/3 out for immediate consumption, & the other portions tucked away for a couple of special occasions! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (350 g) packages semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (300 ml) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 (225 g) packagemilk chocolate-covered caramel candies (I use Rollos or regular caramels cut in half)
  • 1 (225 g) package milk chocolate, white chocolate or 1 (225 g) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening


  1. Melt semi-sweet chips and sweetened condensed milk over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Chill 2 hours. Shape into small balls around Chocolate covered Caramels, about 1 inch diameter.
  4. Chill balls about 1 hour or until firm. Melt chips and shortening together, stirring until smooth. Dip truffle balls, one at a time into melted chocolate to cover completely.
  5. Gently shake off excess coating. Place on waxed paper-covered tray. If desired sprinkle some truffles with chopped nuts immediately after dipping.
  6. Let stand or refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes. If desired, drizzle some truffles with melted chocolate from a spoon or icing bag to decorate. Store loosely covered in a cool dry place up to 2 months.
