A few years ago, I began giving these smooth, minty truffles in tins as Christmas gifts. Now I can't go a year without sharing them. They also make a perfect Valentine's treat for someone dear. -Kim Weiesnbach, Claremore, Oklahoma

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon plus 3/4 cup butter, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 2 packages (4.67 ounces each) mint Andes candies
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (2 each) equals 161 calories, 9 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 12 mg cholesterol, 52 mg sodium, 21 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. Butter a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan with 1 tablespoon butter; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, milk and remaining butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 236° (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat. Stir in candies until melted and mixture is well blended. Stir in marshmallow creme and vanilla until smooth. Spread into prepared pan; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Cut into 96 pieces; roll each into a ball (mixture will be soft). Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet.
  3. In a heavy saucepan or microwave-safe bowl, melt 18 oz. of white chocolate and chocolate chips. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper to harden. Melt the remaining white chocolate; add food coloring if desired. Drizzle over truffles. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 8 dozen.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

MY REVIEW

"Sorry, I have not made this recipe, so I gave it 5 stars because that's what it already had. Can you make the balls ahead of time and then freeze them and when ready, thaw and coat with the chocolate??"

"I have been making these for years also, at Christmas. They are fantastic. My granddaughters loved rolling and dipping these. Has become a family tradition."
