  1. Empty the package of Candy Melts Candy and chop into tiny pieces, either by chopping or using a food processor. Place chopped pieces in a bowl and set it aside.

  2. Heat 1/2 cup whipping cream in a saucepan until the cream just begins to steam and the edges start to bubble. Do not boil.

  3. Remove from heat and add the chopped candy. Stir until the mixture is smooth and glossy.

  4. Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet and then refrigerate until firm.

  5. Once firm, use a small spoon or a melon baller to scoop a mound of the truffle mixture from the baking sheet, then roll it into balls that are 1 inch in diameter.

  6. Repeat until there is no mixture left. Should make about 48 homemade truffles.
