Total Time


1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

8 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate, chopped

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

Unsweetened cocoa

Powdered sugar

Chocolate and/or vanilla candy coating, melted, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Place whipping cream and chocolate in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 7-9 minutes or until chocolate melts. Remove from heat. Stir in butter until melted. Place mixture into bowl. Cover; refrigerate 2-4 hours or until firm.

  2. STEP 2

    Dust hands with cocoa or powdered sugar. Shape 2 teaspoons mixture, working quickly, into balls; roll in cocoa or powdered sugar. (Truffle mixture will be soft; repeat dusting hands to make shaping easier or use small ice cream scoop to form balls.) Refrigerate at least 45 minutes or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Dip truffles into melted candy coating, using spoon or toothpick; let excess drip off. Place dipped truffles onto waxed paper until coating is firm. Drizzle dipped truffles with melted candy coating, if desired. Store truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
