Gorgeous hand made truffles!

I've always wanted to have a stab at hand made truffles so found this recipe and decided to give it a try. These turned out so fab they are a real favourite. You could also package them in a pretty box complete with a ribbon for a great gift!
This recipe gives a total of 36 truffles

2 cups (or 360 grams) of milk chocolate cut in pieces (i used Tesco's budget milk chocolate)
¾ of cup of condensed milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla
½ cup of chocolate sprinkles

Melt the pieces of milky chocolate with a very low fire on the stove. Add the condensed milk and vanilla and mix well. Don’t let it get too hot or else it will change the taste of the chocolate. After it is melted and mixed let it cool for a while.
Then put it on the refrigerator for approximately 45 minutes.
After it has cooled in the refrigerator butter your hands and roll the chocolates into balls about 1 inch diameter.
Pour the chocolate sprinkles into a bowl and roll the balls of chocolate in the bowl until it’s all evenly covered.
You can also freeze them for later use. Just make sure to take them out of the freezer 5 hours before serving.

You could use plain chocolate or roll in dessicated coconut for a different effect. Why not give it a go?
