Ingredients

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 (10-ounce) package (2 cups) crème de menthe baking chips  

1 (12-ounce) package vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)

2 drops green food color

Powdered sugar or cocoa

1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    Melt candy coating in deep 1-quart saucepan over low heat; stir8-10 minutes or until smooth. Stir in food color until well mixed. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes.

  4. STEP 4

    Remove truffles from refrigerator. Place 1truffle 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.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

Tip #4

- Spiral candy forks can be used for dipping instead of a small spoon. They are available at cake and candy decorating stores.
