The next treat I made for my work’s holiday luncheon were these cranberry walnut truffles. They were very simple to make – only a few ingredients – and delicious. I was a little worried they wouldn’t set, but after rolling them into balls and refrigerating the tray of them overnight, they were perfect. I had multiple coworkers ask me for the recipe. Success!
The combination of walnuts, dried cranberries and pretzels mixed together and then rolled in powdered sugar is the perfect bite of sweetness and salty.
1 2/3 cup finely chopped pretzels
2/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
1 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup powdered sugar
In a large bowl, mix together the pretzels, cranberries and walnuts. In a separate bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until combined. Refrigerate at least 10 minutes to chill. Mine was closer to 1 hour, as I got busy doing something else.
In a small bowl or plate, add the powdered sugar. Remove the truffle mixture from the refrigerator and using a small scoop, scoop the truffles into balls. Using your hands, form into a ball and roll in the powdered sugar to coat. Place in small foil cups. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
