Easy Chocolate Truffles

cooking spray
12 ounces milk chocolate
1/3 cup light cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening

Cover a baking sheet with wax paper, and spray paper with nonstick cooking spray. Melt milk chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Stir in the cream and vanilla. Spoon tablespoon-sized scoops of the chocolate mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 30 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in shortening.
Roll each piece of chilled chocolate into a ball. Use a spoon or plastic fork without the middle tong to dip chocolate balls into the melted chocolate chip mixture. Return truffles to baking sheet, and chill until firm. (Can also be rolled in melted white chocolate or dark chocolate!)
