These have become a Christmas tradition at our home! We have finally perfected it to our taste! We usually add more then 1/2 cup of mini morsels, but the sprinkling of sea salt on top is what pushes these over the edge! Even my picky daughter (who I started this tradition with) LOVES the addition of the salt.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour, alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Shape into 1-in. balls; place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm.
In a microwave bowl, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls in coating; allow excess to drip off; Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with a few grains of sea salt on each truffle. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Store in the refrigerator.
