Marshmallow Truffles and Sugar Free Marshmallow Truffles

This week is booked solid busy, but I'm hoping perhaps I can pull off a time when I am in the mood to get these Marshmallow Truffles made.  I found a sugar free Marshmallow Fluff Mixmix to try - and it's in my pantry right now just waiting for me to try to make this recipe into a sugar free, healthier version.

By using my sugar free marshmallow fluff, the sugar free chocolate chips I always have on hand and the Ideal Confectioner's Sugar Substitute, I think I can pull off a perfect sugar-free option.

Marshmallow Truffles

7 oz jar marshmallow creme
1/3 c butter, softened
1/4 t almond or vanilla extrat
1/4 t salt
3 c powdered sugar
8 oz semisweet chocolate squares or chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
white almond bark or baking chocolate, melted

In a large bowl, combine marshmallow creme, butter, almond extract, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar, beating until well mixed. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until mixture is easy to handle.

Lightly dust your hands with additional powdered sugar; shape marshmallow mixture into 1-inch balls.  Freeze on a greased baking sheet for 20 - 30 minutes.  In a small saucepan, combine semisweet chocolate and shortening. Heat and stir over low heat or double boiler method until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.

Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. Remove balls, a few at a time, from the freezer; dip balls in chocolate.  Place balls on waxed-paper-lined baking sheet.  Let stand at room temperature about 15 minutes or until completely set. If desired, drizzle truffles with melted white chocolate. Makes about 40 truffles.
