These elegant truffles make a special gift. The creamy chocolate mint center melts in your mouth.
Combine whipping cream and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat 4-5 minutes or until butter is melted. Add crème de menthe baking chips. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or freeze 1 hour until firm.
Dust hands with powdered sugar or cocoa. Working quickly, shape mixture into 1-inch balls. (Truffle mixture will be soft; repeat dusting hands to make shaping easier, if necessary.) Place balls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Melt candy coating in deep 1-quart saucepan over low heat; stir 8-10 minutes or until smooth. Stir in food color until well mixed. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes.
Remove truffles from refrigerator. Place 1 truffle in candy coating mixture. Use small spoon to coat truffle; immediately remove and place onto waxed paper. Repeat with remaining truffles. (Work quickly so truffles do not melt.) Refrigerate 10 minutes or until coating is set.
Drizzle each truffle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until set. Place truffles in paper or foil candy cups. Store refrigerated in container with tight-fitting lid up to 2 weeks.

they are sooooo gooodddd!!!! yummy!
I would rate as a number 5. I have made it several times and have given the recipe to more people than I can remember. I do have a problem in dipping but I think that I have the candy too cold and I do not let the coating cool enough.
Of the 12 dozen varieties of candies and cookies over 70 dozen total I made this Holiday season this one ranked tops by everyone who enjoyed the Holiday Treat Trays I gave them. And, I would agree. I will certainly make them again. They were also quite easy to make. The mixture handled quite well to roll into balls. Thanks for a great new recipe.
I made these for my holiday baking and they were very good. I would definitely make these again!
These are THE best creamiest, tastiest truffles I have EVER made. The best compliments from EVERYONE.What helped even more was that I would take out a few from the freezer and dip them and when I was done with those I would go back and get more to dip. This seemed to help them from getting too soft to handle when trying to get them completely coat them. This is by far one of the best recipes I have ever made, and that is 50+ years of baking.

This past weekend was glorious! We had perfect weather for catching up on our yard work. We spent all of Saturday afternoon weeding and tending to our overgrown “problem” areas. Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.
