Ingredients

  • 8 ounces good-quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 8 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate
  • One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • Mint extract (3 to 4 drops)
  • 8 ounces meltable milk chocolate
  • Decorator's sugar
  • Green food coloring

Directions

Heat the dark chocolates and condensed milk in a double boiler over medium-low heat until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. The mixture will have a slight marshmallow texture. Stir in the mint extract to your taste.

Remove from the heat, and then cover and refrigerate until completely cool, at least 2 hours.

Once chilled, roll in teaspoon-size balls, and then dip into the melted milk chocolate coating, using a fork to let the excess chocolate drip off.

Color the decorators sugar with a small amount of green food coloring and sprinkle on top of the truffles
