True Love Truffles Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + chilling YIELD:48 servings

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
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 22 ounces white baking chocolate, divided
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Green food coloring, optional

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.

"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??"
