Directions

  1. Heat chocolates, butter and milk in a pan until chocolates and butter are partially melted. Remove from heat and stir until completely melted. Whisk in desired flavoring until creamy-smooth.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and let stand until firm enough to hold its shape, about 2 hours.
  3. Using a tablespoon (a spring-action 1 Tb. scoop is ideal), mold chocolate into balls, 1 level Tb. at a time, and place on a cookie sheet lined with greased parchment paper.
  4. Place desired coating in a small bowl. Working one at a time, drop truffles into the bowl with greased fingertips. Shake bowl back and forth so truffles are completely coated. If necessary, roll truffles by hand to make round. Return to parchment. (Can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 5 days or frozen up to 1 month.) Before serving, let stand at room temperature to soften slightly.

I can tell you exactly why this recipe doesn't set up. You should follow the recipe WITHOUT the butter. Melt any chocolate you like at 12 ounces with one can of sweetened condensed milk on low...

ok, so i did EXACTLY what the recipe said, but it didn't firm up... either i used the wrong kind of shortening or something, but all i have is a yummy gooey mess, that would be perfect inside of...

I felt the same as the other 3-the recipe would not set up and all I had was chocolate goo-then I added a cup of sifted powdered sugar and put it in the refrigerator for an hour (this was after ...
