No-Fuss Truffles Recipe

No-Fuss Truffles Recipe

You'll need only three ingredients to make these fluffy chocolate bites. The quick, creamy confections get a pretty look when rolled in ground almonds as shown here. Placed in foil candy cups, they make a special gift when presented in a festive holiday tin.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + freezing YIELD:27 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (10 to 12 ounces each) milk chocolate or butterscotch chips
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1-1/4 cups ground toasted almonds, graham cracker crumbs or finely chopped salted peanuts

Directions

  • 1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chips; stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes, stirring several times.
  • 2. Fold in whipped topping. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Freeze for 1-1/2 hours or until firm.
  • 3. Shape into balls; roll in almonds, crumbs or peanuts. Refrigerate or freeze in an airtight container. If frozen, remove from the freezer 30 minutes before serving. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
