  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups white chocolate and peppermint chips
  • 3 cups dark chocolate melting wafers, chips, or a baking bar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • peppermints or candy canes crushed for garnish


  1. Combine the sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate peppermint chips in a large bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir the mixture together. If the chocolate hasn’t fully melted, microwave it for another 30 seconds.
  2. Place the mixture in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or until it has set.
  3. Scoop the mixture into 1” balls. I recommend using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to ensure all of the truffles are the same size.
  4. Note: Have a glass of warm water nearby and dip your cookie scoop into it before scooping each ball. It will make them easier to scoop and release the truffles easier.
  5. Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave on 30 second intervals-- stirring between each interval— until it is fully melted. It should take 1-2 minutes.
  6. Dip the truffles one at a time into the melted dark chocolate. Allow any excess to drip off and then place the truffles on a parchment lined baking sheet to set. Garnish with crushed peppermints or candy canes.

  7. Allow the truffles to set fully before enjoying. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes

Make sure to use sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk.

If you can’t find White Chocolate Peppermint Chips, you can substitute 2 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup finely crushed candy canes.

I like the combination of dark chocolate with the peppermint in this recipe but you can use any chocolate you like— milk and semi-sweet would also be delicious.

The coconut oil helps the chocolate set and creates a shinier exterior. If you don’t have any, feel free to leave it out.
