Chocolate Balls

I wanted to post this recipe mainly because of the title. Chocolate Balls. It made me giggle. If anyone has ever tried to make truffles, they can either end in beauty or disaster so I found this recipe that is "trufflish" and super easy. To be quite honest, I haven't gotten a chance to try these out but it's such an easy recipe that I can just tell they're going to be PERFECT! I AM trying them today so I'll let everyone know how they turned out. We have friends over a lot and these seemed like the perfect, no mess dessert for entertaining. Thank you Costco magagzine for sharing them with me :)

1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 tbs cocoa
1 tsp almond, coffee or coconut liqueur
1 c. chopped chocolate, coconut or nonpareils (sprinkles)

FAILURE! i'm not sure if I just didn't cook it long enough, but it DID NOT come together. I didn't have any liqueur so I added some orange extract and it tasted really good. Too bad it didn't pull itself together. *sigh*
