Try something surprisingly easy. With just a few ingredients you can have homemade truffles!
Updated Sep 21, 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar, if desired
  • Unsweetened baking cocoa, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Line cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper. In heavy 2-quart saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat, stirring constantly; remove from heat.
  • 2
    Stir in whipping cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Refrigerate 30 to 60 minutes, stirring frequently, just until firm enough to roll into balls.
  • 3
    Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Shape into balls. (If mixture is too sticky, refrigerate until firm enough to shape.) Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.
  • 4
    Sprinkle half of the truffles with powdered sugar and half with cocoa. Store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week. Remove truffles from refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving; serve at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Like the photo? To serve truffles like this, punch small hole in bottom of silver paper candy cups. Insert an 8- to 12-inch lollipop stick through bottom of a cup and then into a truffle. Wrap thin ribbon around the stick. Place truffle "pops" in a simple silver cup or pitcher.
  • tip 2
    Make truffles up to one week before serving.
