8 ounces good-quality bittersweet chocolate

8 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate

One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk 

3 to 4 drops mint extract

8 ounces meltable milk chocolate 

Decorator's sugar

Green food coloring


  1. Heat the dark chocolates and condensed milk in a double boiler over medium-low heat until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. The mixture will have a slight marshmallow texture. Stir in the mint extract to your taste. 
  2. Remove from the heat, and then cover and refrigerate until completely cool, at least 2 hours. 
  3. Once chilled, roll in teaspoon-size balls, and then dip into the melted milk chocolate coating, using a fork to let the excess chocolate drip off. 
  4. Color the decorators sugar with a small amount of green food coloring and sprinkle on top of the truffles.
