Chocolate Truffles

Kitchen Concoctions:

Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 5 minutes Wait Time: 3-4 hours Makes: 20-25 truffles

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Desired coatings (sprinkles, chopped nuts, cocoa, powdered sugar, coconut, etc.)

In a small saucepan, heat cream to a simmer. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips and

vanilla. Let sit for 5 minutes and then stir chocolate mixture until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and chill until firm, approximately 3-4 hours.

Using a small spoon, scoop out heaping spoonfuls of the firm chocolate mixture. Working quickly, to keep from chocolate from melting, roll it between the palms of your hands to form balls.

Place desired coatings in separate bowls. Roll truffle in coating of your choice and refrigerate until ready to serve.
