Snowball Truffles...

As promised here is recipe No. 3...now be warned this one is not a low fat recipe!
This is my snowball truffle recipe...that when finished look like little snowballs!
This one takes a few more ingredients but if you like white chocolate and coconut flakes...this recipe is for you! Now what is a snowball truffle recipe card without Tilda! I had to use one of my Tilda images for this one! Lots of glitter on the snowball and around the recipe!



Directions:
In a bowl, add and heat the cream, butter, extract and 8 ounces of the white chocolate in microwave at med. power at 30 second intervals. Make sure to stir in between to avoid scorching. Continue on 30 second intervals, stirring until chocolate is smooth and melted. Fold
in the sugar. Cover bowl and pop into the refrigerator for about 1 1/2 hours.
Place a cooling rack over 1 baking sheet. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the inside of another backing sheet. Melt the remaining chocolate in the microwave. Take out the cooled and semi hardened truffle mixture. Using a tablespoon scoop out enough to make a ball. Lay the ball onto the rack. Continue the process until you have about 16 truffles!

Using a pastry brush, "Paint" on the melted chocolate and place on parchment paper. Now sprinkle your truffles with coconut. Continue painting and sprinkling until you are done!
Refrigerate for about 1 hour.

Hope you enjoy this recipe! Tomorrow it is homemade candy cane cookies!
