Ingredients

12 ounces
bittersweet chocolate*, finely chopped
1/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup
Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream
Powdered sugar
Black, orange and/or your favorite color decorator sprinkles or coarse grain or sanding sugar
 
*Substitute 10- to 12-ounce bag bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips for chopped chocolate.

Directions

  1. Place parchment paper onto 2 baking sheets; set aside.
  2. Place chocolate and butter into bowl; set aside.
  3. 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.

  5. 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.

Recipe Tips

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

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.
