 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      package       Mint chocolate chips (10oz)
      1/3  cup           Whipping cream
      1/4  cup           Butter or margarine
    1      package       Chocolate sprinkles (3oz)
 
 1. Melt chips with whipping cream and butter in heavy, medium saucpan over low
 heat, stirring occasionally. Pour into pie pan. Refrigerate until mixture is
 fudgy, but soft, about 2 hours. 2. Shape about 1 tablespoon of the mixture
 into 1-1/4 inch ball. To shape, roll mixture in your palms. Place ball on
 waxed paper. 3. Place sprinkles in shallow bowl. 4. Roll balls in sprinkles,
 place in petit four or candy cases.( if coating mixture won't stick because
 truffle has set, roll between your palms until outside is soft. 5. Truffles
 can be refrigerated 2-3 days or frozen several weeks. Hint: Truffles are
 coated with cocoa, powdered sugar, nuts, sprinkles or cookie crumbs to add
 flavor and prevent the truffle from melting in your fingers.
 
 Makes about 24 truffles.
