Hello, it’s me again, sitting in a coffee shop working on this post staring at these peppermint treats!
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 12 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
- 2/3 cups Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- crushed candy cane optional
- In medium bowl add cream and chocolate chips. Microwave for one minute.
- Stir until chocolate is smooth.
- Stir in baking chips.
- Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
- Using a melon baller or a small cookie scooper, scoop chocolate into a ball.
- Place in powdered sugar and roll around till covered.
- Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Top with crushed candy cane and refrigerate until ready to serve!
So I know when it comes to truffles you are supposed to use the best kind of chocolate but honestly I just used what I had in the cabinet. It’s all good because that means you can make them too!
