Double-Trouble Chocolate Truffles

Contributed by: Chris WebAdmin. of RecipesNow.com

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces baking chocolate
  • 4 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup roasted, stemmed, seeded and minced New Mexican green chile
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (14-ounce) can light sweetened condensed milk
  • Finely chopped pine nuts

Directions:

Place both chocolates in a double boiler and melt them over the hot water, stirring until smooth. Add the sugar, green chile, cinnamon and milk, mixing until very smooth. Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool slightly.

Shape the chocolate mixture into 1-inch balls, then roll in the pine nuts. Chill the candy in the refrigerator in an airtight tin.

Heat scale:

Medium

Note: Fresh New Mexican green chile is the heat source in this tremendous treat. With the combination of baking chocolate and white chocolate, it's exceptionally wonderful to eat. Try substituting 2 teaspoons of cayenne powder to heat the truffles up even more.

Serving Size: Yield: About 4 dozen.
