I am always keen for something fun to do with the kids in the kitchen. Making chocolates is so fun! It seems to only happen during the Christmas holidays, but this is wonderful to make at anytime! Decorate according to the time of year.

These are surprisingly delicious. Like, they melt in your mouth. I have made several different variations of truffle candies, and I like these the best.

Melt 3 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips.

Melt remaining chocolate chips with shortening and mix well.

Remove chocolate pieces from freezer and get ready to dip!

Decorate however you want! They are SO GOOD!!!
