Homemade Chocolate Truffles
photo by Peter J
- Ready In:
- 30 vanilla wafer cookies (a tube of)
- 1 (397 ml) can condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter or 1 tablespoon margarine, melted
- 2 -3 drops almond extract
- 2 -3 drops vanilla extract
- 1 1 teaspoon Amaretto (optional) or 1 teaspoon vanilla liqueur (optional)
- peanuts (optional) or any kind nuts (optional)
- chopped nuts (optional) or chocolate, snow to cover them (optional)
- Pulverize the cookies completely.
- Put the cookie powder in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, except the ingredients to cover them.
- Mix well, until it becomes a chocolate mixture.
- Refrigerate, covered for a few hours at least or like I do, make them on the evening and let them in the fridge overnight. This hardens the mixture and makes it easy to handle.
- When ready to make, wet your hands just enough to work with the paste and make small balls until finished.
- If you like you can put an almond or a nut inside each truffle.
- Now you can cover them with nuts, or chocolate, or colorful thingies :), or just leave them like that.
- You can keep them in the fridge in a covered container for several days, but they also hold well unfridge if eaten within 1 or 2 days :).

I had my DD make these, since she is the baker and the chocaholic, but really, this is so simple I could have managed it myself!! We stuck to the basic truffle, and dusted them with icing powder, and the family declared the Dee-licious!!!! We'll try these out again and experiment, perfect little gift or treat.
