How to make it
- In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Mix in milk and vanilla.
- Stir in flour and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Cover and chill dough for 30 minutes or until firm enough to handle.
- Form dough into 1-inch balls and arrange them on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
- Place sheets in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or microwave according to package directions, being careful not to overheat it.
- Using a fork or dipping tool, dip truffles one at a time in candy coating to cover.
- Tap fork on the edge of the bowl to shake off excess coating, and return truffles to baking sheets to set.
- If you have any leftover coating, transfer it to a piping bag or squeeze bottle fitted with a small round tip and pipe decorative lines over top of truffles-or simply drizzle coating with a fork for an abstract finish.
- Refrigerated in an airtight container, truffles will keep for up to 1 week, though I dare you to make them last that long.
