Teacher Gift Idea #2 and a Giveaway

Yummy, delicious truffles!

I made these truffles one year for the faculty at school and they were a huge hit.  After I made them, I placed them in a festive Ziploc container and attached a pretty bow and gift tag.  Voila!  Simple, easy gift!

Here's the recipe....sorry no pics, haven't made them recently

1 C evaporated milk
1/2 C sugar
2 pkgs semisweet morsels
1/4 C liquor

Powdered sugar, chocolate or holiday colored sprinkles, chopped nuts, cocoa powder etc., to roll the truffles in.  You could also dip the truffles into melted chocolate...YUM!

Combine milk and sugar in sauce pan and bring to a boil  Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add morsels and liquor.  Turn heat to low and mix until melted and smooth.  Place into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hrs.  Roll into 1 inch balls and roll into covering (powdered sugar, etc.)  Place in holiday candy cups and refrigerate until time to give as gifts. 

Now for the giveaway!  The Pioneer Woman has instructions on her website to enter to win a brand new Photosmart eStation e-All-in-One Printers.  Click the link below to find out more!  I love her site by the way!!
