Toasted Almond Truffles

Recipe from

This is probably my most asked for truffle recipe. It's very versatile too. You can experiment with different combinations of nuts, coconut and flavorings. Great for gift giving or a quick chocolate fix.  If trying this for the first time I suggest not to double the recipe until you've gotten the hang of it.

Toasted Almond Truffles
Estimated Times:
Preparation - 20 min | Cooking - 5 min | Cooling Time - 1 hrs 30 min refrigerating | Yields - 24 truffles (2 dozen)

Creamy and sinfully rich, these chocolate candies are coated with a fine layer of almonds. A touch of vanilla adds a warm note to this sweet confection.

COMBINE evaporated milk and sugar in small, heavy-duty saucepan. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

STIR in morsels. Stir vigorously until mixture is smooth. Stir in almond extract. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in nuts. Cover; refrigerate until ready to serve.
