Crunchy Chocolate Mint Balls

Here's another easy recipe for those holiday cookie and candy trays.

Crunchy Chocolate Mint Balls


1 package (10 ounces) mint chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1-1/4 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (about 22 wafers)
White jimmies


In a double boiler or metal bowl over hot water, melt chips and butter; stir until smooth. Stir in milk. Add wafer crumbs; mix to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Roll into 1-in. balls; roll in jimmies. Place on a waxed paper-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; freeze until firm. Transfer to a resealable plastic freezer bag. May be frozen for up to 3 months.
To use frozen balls: Thaw at room temperature. Yield: 4-1/2 dozen.
