Melt milk, white, or dark chocolate. Cool to at least 98°. Whip cream until it holds a soft peak. Add whipped cream to the warm chocolate, a little at a time, stirring with a spoon. When all chocolate is added, stir in salt and vanilla. Chill in refrigerator until mixture is firm but not stiff (5-20 minutes). Beat with a spoon only until fluffy. Do not overbeat. Follow instructions for dipped or molded truffles below or truffle sandwiches.
After the truffle mixture has chilled 5-20 minutes, use a cookie scoop to achieve consistently shaped balls. Chill the scoops in the refrigerator for an hour or two. Remove from refrigerator and roll into balls. Allow truffle balls to crust slightly at room temperature (several hours or overnight). Melt candy coating or melt and temper chocolate. Dip truffle balls into melted chocolate. After chocolate has been dipped, immediately roll truffles in finely chopped mixed nuts.
