You may know Krystal Keith as the singer of the sweet father/daughter wedding dance song, “Daddy Dance With Me,” which she wrote for her own wedding as a surprise for dad Toby Keith. Or maybe you know her from her official debut single, “Get Your Redneck On.” [Get it here!] But did you know she’s also super talented in the kitchen? Krystal’s been creating delicious meals from family recipes for years and featuring them in her blog, The Barnyard Bistro. But now she’s sharing some of them exclusively with Great American Country! Check back with us every Tuesday for a new recipe from Krystal.
“This is one of the easiest treats to whip up for a cute and tasty little gift or the perfect bite-sized desserts for a gathering,” says Krystal. “My Great-Grandmother, Nannie, passed this recipe down to me and I love, love, love making these for everything. I always get rave reviews and I never have to tell a soul how simple they were to make.”
2 lbs white confectioners coating
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
Coating options: chocolate or vanilla confectioners coating, cocoa, powdered sugar
In a saucepan, melt the white confectioners coating and condensed milk. Once all the coating is melted into the milk, remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Transfer to a glass bowl and refrigerate for approximately an hour. Once cooled, shape into one-inch balls. Prepare coating by melting confectioners coating or you can place cocoa or powdered sugar in a bowl for rolling. Use a wooden toothpick to dip the balls into the coating and place on wax paper to cool. If using the confectioners coating, feel free to finish with sprinkles or edible glitter. Let cool and enjoy!
Tip~ If the toothpick isn’t working, you can drop the truffle into the coating and use a fork to lift the truffle out of the chocolate. Wipe the bottom side of the fork on the rim of the bowl to remove excess. Use a toothpick to slide off onto waxed paper.
