In the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it is nice to have a great candy recipe that is quick and easy to make. If you are like me, it is difficult to spend a lot of time in the kitchen making your Christmas candy recipes.
No-Fuss Truffles Recipe
2 packages (10 to 12 ounces each) milk chocolate or butterscotch chips
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1-1/4 cups ground toasted almonds, graham cracker crumbs or finely chopped salted peanuts
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chips; stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes, stirring several times.
Fold in whipped topping. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Freeze for 1-1/2 hours or until firm.
Shape into balls; roll in almonds, crumbs or peanuts. Refrigerate or freeze in an airtight container. If frozen, remove from the freezer 30 minutes before serving. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
