Chocolate Toffee Truffles


These were a new candy for me this year. I have made truffles in the past but never with the toffee chips in them. They turned out very good! I dipped them in chocolate and then drizzled them with the white chocolate to differentiate them from the Bon Bons but you could also just roll them in cocoa powder or chocolate sprinkles or even colored sugar. For gift giving, they look very nice placed individually in paper candy cups.

Chocolate Toffee Truffles

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
2/3 cup toffee chips
3 tablespoons milk

Melt together the chocolate chips and butter, remove from heat. Stir in the powdered sugar, toffee chips and milk. Mix well until blended (go ahead, use your hands, it's easier!). Cover and chill mixture until firm enough to shape, 1 to 2 hours. Shape into 1-inch balls. At this point, either dip them in melted chocolate or roll them in cocoa powder, chocolate sprinkles or colored sugar. For the white chocolate drizzle, I melted the chocolate with a little cooking oil, put it in a plastic baggie, snipped off a tiny corner and drizzled it quickly over the candies.


One more candy post left for tomorrow, the easiest one of all and my dad's favorite, Chocolate Peanut Clusters! :)

Susan,
I would tell you to "come on down" and enjoy some warmer weather but we are supposed to get snow tomorrow; although, not enough to warrant a Snow Wolf! ;-)
