12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped*
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
Powdered sugar
Black, orange and/or your favorite color decorator sprinkles or coarse grain or sanding sugar


Place parchment paper onto 2 baking sheets; set aside.

Place chocolate and butter into bowl; set aside.

Pour whipping cream into 1-quart saucepan; cook over medium-high heat 4-5 minutes or until cream comes to a boil. Pour hot whipping cream over chocolate mixture in bowl; let stand 2 minutes. Stir mixture with whisk until smooth. Pour into 8- or 9-inch square pan. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm enough to shape.

Sprinkle powdered sugar over clean hands; shape level tablespoons of chocolate mixture into balls. Place onto prepared baking sheets.

Place decorator sprinkles or sugars into bowls; set aside. Roll each truffle in desired coating. Place truffles in container with tight-fitting lid; refrigerate about 1 hour until firm. Store refrigerated.

*Substitute 10- to 12-ounce bag bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips for chopped chocolate.

Recipe Tip

If mixture is too soft to roll into balls, refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes and try again.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

They look and taste great.
Very creamy and smooth - easy to make although mixture was so soft and sticky - hard to roll into a ball. Perhaps I just needed to let it chill in fridge longer - or maybe 15 min in freezer would have done the trick. Used way more sprinkles to roll balls than I thought I would - but probably because they were sticky. Still - were very tasty and creamy - the family loved them.
