Recipe: Hershey Truffles

  Today's recipe is one that I got out of my local newspaper! It's pretty easy, but you need a little bit more time if you want to make them.  They are really tasty and perfect for Valentine's Day! (Which is what they were advertised for.)  The recipe below makes 10. 

28 Milk Chocolate Hershey Kisses 
10 Caramel Hershey Kisses 
2 Tbsp & 2 tsp Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup Ground Pecans 


Put the 28 milk chocolate Hershey kisses into a microwave safe bowl.  Add in the 2 Tbsp & 2 tsp of heavy whipping cream.  

Put your microwave at 50% power and melt the chocolate milk mix for 1 minute, or until smooth.  

Then put it in the fridge for 4 to 6 hours, or until firm.  ( I let the chocolate set over night, but I'm sure 4 hours is plenty of time. )
Just a caution, use exactly that much milk, I went a little over and it wouldn't firm up properly.  If you do use too much milk, add in a few extra kisses.  

Put 1 cup of pecans into a bowl. 

After your chocolate is firm, take about a tablespoon flatten it out a bit, and then wrap it around one of the caramel kisses.  

Then roll it into a ball, roll it in the pecans, and place on a plate. 

Keep them in the fridge until you're ready to serve them up.
