Valentine's Day Truffles
I had planned on doing the drizzle before applying the hearts, but the messages were printed a little wonky on a lot of candy pieces so the drizzle went on top. I scattered the remaining hearts on the serving tray for a little extra cuteness.
Chocolate Orange Cream Truffles
14oz non fat sweetened condensed milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 envelope Orange Kool-Aid
24oz milk chocolate chips
Mix together sweetened condensed milk and Kool-Aid. Beat in powdered sugar. Melt 12oz chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth. Add the melted chocolate to the milk mixture, blending until creamy. Form into balls and place on waxed paper. Chill for an hour or so.
Melt remaining 12oz chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave until smooth, stirring often to prevent overheating. Dip centers in chocolate with a fork and place back on waxed paper. Top truffles with message hearts. When you have finished dipping in chocolate, use your fork to flick lines of drizzle across the tops of the truffles. Chill until set.
