Caramel Truffles

I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website and I'm glad I tried it out. These were easy to make and everyone likes them. They would be a great addition to your Christmas trays. -Sarah

26 caramels
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 1/3 cup chocolate chips
1 T. shortening

  • Line an 8x8 pan with plastic wrap and spray lightly with cooking spray. 
  • Microwave the caramels, 1 cup chocolate chips and cream. One minute and stir, 1 minute longer and stir again. Continue stirring every 15 seconds until mixture is completely smooth. 
  • Spread into prepared pan and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  • Cut cooled mixture into 30 pieces and roll into a ball. Refrigerate again until firm. 
  • In another bowl microwave chocolate chips and shortening (or use melting chocolates) until completely melted and smooth. 
  • Dip balls in melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles if desired.
