One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

8 ounces good-quality bittersweet chocolate 

8 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate 

1 tablespoon vanilla extract 

8 ounces good-quality milk chocolate, melted 

2 tablespoons chipotle salt or regular sea salt


  1. Heat the sweetened condensed milk, bittersweet and semisweet chocolates and the vanilla in a double boiler over medium-low heat until the chocolate is melted. Stir; the mixture will have a slight marshmallow texture. Remove from the heat, cover and refrigerate until chilled, 2 hours.
  2. Roll the chilled mixture in balls, then roll in the melted milk chocolate to coat. Sprinkle with the chipotle salt.
