Chocolate Maple Bacon Truffles

These easy, bite-sized desserts combine two of everyone’s favorite flavors: bacon and chocolate!

Chocolate Maple Bacon Truffles

INGREDIENTS
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tub Betty Crocker maple bacon frosting OR
1 tub vanilla frosting with 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 Tablespoon milk
3 Tablespoons solid shortening
1 cup Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 slices maple-flavored bacon – cooked and crumbled

These bite-sized easy desserts combine two of everyone's favorite flavors: bacon and chocolate!

DIRECTIONS
1.   Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set it aside.
2.   In a large mixing bowl, add the powdered sugar, milk, frosting (and maple syrup, if using). Stir until well blended.
3.    Roll the truffle filling into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Cover and freeze for 20 minutes while preparing the chocolate coating. Chilling the truffle balls will make it easier to dip into the chocolate.
5.   In a double boiler, melt the shortening over medium heat. (I’ve tried the microwave method with these chocolate chips but have found using a double boiler creates shinier, smoother chocolate).
6.  Add the chocolate chips and stir occasionally until melted.
7.   Pour melted chocolate into a small mixing bowl. Dip a truffle ball into the chocolate with the help of an inserted toothpick. Allow any excess chocolate to run off.
8.   Gently place the chocolate-coated truffle back onto the cookie sheet and remove the toothpick.
9.   Immediately sprinkle 1 teaspoon of crumbled bacon on top of the truffle before the chocolate hardens. Repeat with the remaining truffles.
10.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
