mint truffles

When it comes to fancy desserts, my friend Kiana is a rock star.  She was embarrassed to give this recipe to me because it is clearly not her fanciest of recipes but I had to call her immediately after trying them for the recipe.  These truffles are absolutely delicious.  Let me make one thing clear- I will not be dipping truffles or go through any more effort than is required to make these- why would I?  My family was in heaven.

mint truffles (my friend Kiana)
1 bag Guittard milk chocolate chips
1 bag Guittard semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (8 ounce) tub Cool Whip topping
bag of mint M&Ms, crushed

In a glass bowl placed over a pot with simmering water, melt chocolate chips.  Take off the stove and beat in (by hand) Cool Whip until smooth and creamy (will go through an "ugly lumpy" stage).  Freeze for 1-2 hours.  Form into balls then roll into crushed mint M&Ms.

What Kiana has to say- you can roll these beauties into whatever you want.  She likes to roll them into crushed red and pink M&Ms at Valentine's Day.
