This easy homemade truffle recipe comes from the 80s, when Nestle included it in their ads for their chocolate chips. It uses evaporated milk and chocolate chips, a little sugar, and then you roll them in your favorite chopped nuts.

The company originally called them toasted almond truffles, but you don’t need to limit yourself to almonds! You can also coat them in any kind of chopped nut (like walnuts or pecans), or with other delicious things like flaked coconut, powdered sugar, or a dusting of unsweetened cocoa powder.
