Tea on Tuesday: Holiday Truffles

I LOVE making these for the holidays! They are super, super simple and make an impressive gift! I made these for my in-laws last year and what a presentation they make in a cute Christmas tin and little gold foil wrappers.

Ingredients:
* 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
* 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
* Finely chopped toasted nuts, flaked coconut, baking cocoa, powdered sugar, or red and green sprinkles

Directions:
* In a microwave, combine chips and milk. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring after 1-1/2 minutes; stir until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Chill for 3 hours or until firm.
* Shape into 1-in. balls; roll in nuts, coconut, cocoa or sprinkles. Chill 1 hour or until firm. Store covered at room temperature or in a refrigerator.

Yield: 6 dozen.
