These truffles are a family favorite ! I get requests to make them every year around the holidays, & they don't last very long. They are even a nice treat to make for any special occasion.


Are you making this? 
10 ounce Ghirardelli Semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup Whipping cream
1/4 cup Butter
1 tablespoon Peppermint extract
3 1/2 ounce Chocolate sprinkles

Original recipe makes 24



Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. Melt chips with whipping cream and butter in a heavy, medium saucepan over low heat , stiring occasionally. Once melted, take off heat and stir in peppermint extract. Pour into pie pan. Refrigerate until mixture is fudgy, but soft, about 2 hours.

Shape about 1 teaspoonful of mixture into a 1 inch ball, by rolling mixture in between the palms of your hands. Repeat procedure with remaining chocolate mixture. Place balls on waxed paper.

Place sprinkles in shallow bowl and roll balls in sprinkles. Place chocolate truffles in petit four candy cups, if desired.

These may be refrigated for 2 to 3 days or frozen for up to several weeks.

I could not get semi sweet/60% it was either 50 or 70. Don't make them with 70% it's too bitter and had to throw it but I will try again with 50% and rate again. Very messy whilst rolling!
