These mint truffles use less expensive ingredients than most, but are still delicious, and very pretty too, if you opt for the white coating!
Economical Mint Truffles
Thumb of 2010-11-13/Lynxx/4793a3

*1 1/2 lbs. (about 4 1/2 cups) chocolate flavored compound coating, melted
3/4 cup evaporated milk
4 drops oil of peppermint (must use this, not extract)
Optional: small bowl of white almond bark, melted and divided

Line an 8 inch square baking pan with plastic wrap. Set aside. Place melted compound coating in a medium size bowl, set aside. Pour evaporated milk into a 1 quart saucepan.
Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer, do not allow to boil. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Add oil of peppermint. Pour over the compound coating. Using
an electric mixer, beat until the mixture is smooth and thick. pour into prepared pan. refrigerate 2 hours or until firm. Cut into 1 inch squares. Roll them between your palms into small ball shapes. makes 64 pieces.
*If you are going for the optional almond bark coating (as seen in photo) color one of the divided bowls using paste green food coloring, a very tiny bit will do. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. First dip each ball into the melted white and set each onto baking sheet.
Now drizzle the green tinted bark over the balls using a small spoon. Allow to cool completely. You can also reverse, as shown in photo above, for another pretty finished look. Store in tupperware. Store in refrigerator, if they last long enough! * Article describing Compound Coating & it's Uses
