DIRECTIONS

  • In saucepan, combine whipping cream & butter.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, just until mixture boils; remove from heat. Stir in chocolates until melted; continue stirring until mixture cools & thickens slightly.
  • Stir in vanilla.
  • Pour into shallow glass dish.
  • Cover; chill until firm.
  • With spoon scoop mixture into 1 inch balls.
  • Coating Melt chocolate & shortening over low heat; stirring constantly.
  • (use 1 Tbsp of shortening for every 6 oz. of chocolate).
  • When mixture is smooth remove from heat. Dip each truffle into coating.
  • (I found dr opping them in the chocolate & then fishing them out with a spoon worked best. But work quickly or they will melt) Then either place them on foil or in foil candy papers & allow to harden.
  • Mix powdered sugar & milk.
  • Drizzle over truffles in various designs.
