No-Fuss Truffles

Total Time

Prep: 50 min. + freezing


about 4-1/2 dozen

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.

  • 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


  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.

    Very good. I have been searching for this recipe. Used it last Christmas. Wanted more. Love that you can make ahead and freeze.
