Ingredients

  • 3 packages (12 ounces each) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 2-1/4 cups sweetened condensed milk, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-1/2 pounds white candy coating, melted
  • 3/4 pound dark chocolate candy coating, melted
  • 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candies
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt one package of chips; stir until smooth. Add 3/4 cup milk and mix well. Stir in orange extract. Repeat twice, adding peppermint extract to one portion and almond extract to the other.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes or until firm enough to shape into 1-in. balls.
  3. Place on three separate waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill for 1-2 hours or until firm.
  4. Dip orange-flavored truffles twice in white candy coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set.
