Chocolate & Candy
Easy to make recipe using Merckens chocolate melts to make delicious truffles.
Place candy coatings in a four-cup microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup and microwave for 20 seconds at a time stirring in between to distribute hot spots. You may have to repeat this several times. When almost completely melted stir until the remaining pieces dissolve.
In a one-cup glass measuring cup heat cream in the microwave (or in a saucepan over the stove) just until hot not boiling.
Pour cream into the melted coatings and stir until blended and satiny smooth.
Add up to one tablespoon of your favorite Liquor, Extract, Or Flavoring Oil (optional).
Refrigerate until firm
You can use a melon scoop to portion even amounts to roll into balls. Roll your truffles in cocoa powder, nuts, or dip into melted confectionery coatings.
These truffles can be stored for up to two weeks in the refrigerator after they've been made. Truffles can be kept at room temperature but will stay fresher longer in the refrigerator.
