Edited on Nov 28, 2007

I love making/eating Truffles! This is probably one of the easiest ways I have found. And they are Delicious too! Hope you enjoy them.


1/2 cup Carnation evaporated milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 tablespoon hot water
2 cups (12 ounces) Nestle` semisweet chocolate or white baking chips
1/2 cup finely chopped toasted almonds


1. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the evaporated milk and sugar; heat over medium heat until the mixture comes to a rolling boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly; remove from the heat.
2. In a cup, dissolve the coffee in the hot water; add to the milk mixture along with the chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
3. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls, then roll in the almonds. Place on a cookie sheet, cover, and chill for at least 2 hours, or until firm.

Make two batches to mix together on a platter one using semisweet chocolate and the other using white chocolate.
Roll these in a variety of toppings besides toasted almonds or other chopped nuts, like colored sprinkles, colored granulated sugars, cocoa powder, and even crushed candy bars. They sure make a festive presentation!

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
