    Chocolate Mint Truffles

    1 c (11.5-oz. pkg.) milk-chocolate chips
    1 c (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
    c heavy whipping cream
    1 tbsp peppermint extract
    1 c finely chopped walnuts, toasted

    Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Place milk-chocolate and semi-sweet morsels in large mixer bowl. Heat cream to a gentle boil in small saucepan; pour over morsels. Let stand for 1 minute; stir until smooth. Stir in peppermint extract. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for 35 to 45 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir just until color lightens slightly. (Do not over mix, or truffles will be grainy.)

    Drop by rounded tsp onto prepared baking sheet; refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes. Shape into balls; roll in walnuts. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

    VARIATION: After rolling chocolate mixture into balls, freeze for 30 to 40 minutes. Microwave 1 3/4 c (11.5-oz package) milk chocolate chips and 3 tbsp vegetable shortening in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Dip truffles into chocolate mixture; shake off excess. Place on foil-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
