Instructions

  • Line and lightly oil a 15x10x1-in baking tray.
  • Combine the butter, sugar and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until the thermometer reads (112 C) 235 F.
  • Remove the mixture from the heat; stir in the vanilla and the chocolate chips until chocolate is melted.
  • Mix in the marshmallow creme until well combined.
  • Transfer the truffle mix into the prepared tray and refrigerate, uncovered, for minimum 5 hrs or until firm.
  • Cut the truffle mix into truffle size pieces, form into balls and then roll each truffle in the beetroot powder.

Notes

Tips 
  • In addition to the beetroot powder, you can also roll the truffles in cocoa powder or finely chopped nuts. Or, you can use all 3 to make a flavourful assortment.
  • To avoid staining your hands red, wear plastic gloves when rolling the truffles in the beetroot powder.
  • The number of truffles this recipe yields depends on how big or small you make them. I was able to get approximately 30 truffles that were 1-inch round.
