1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract  

4 cups powdered sugar


1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons shortening


Chocolate shavings, chocolate sprinkles or decorator sprinkles, as desired

 *Substitute almond, orange or rum extract.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter and cream cheese in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Add vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Beat at low speed, gradually adding powdered sugar, until well mixed. (If mixture is too soft, cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to form balls.)

  2. STEP 2

    Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of mixture into 1-inch balls. Place onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Cover loosely; refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, 3-4 minutes or until smooth. Dip buttercreams into chocolate mixture using fork to turn and remove; let excess chocolate drip off. Place onto waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Garnish with chocolate shavings, chocolate sprinkles and decorator sprinkles, as desired. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to set. Store refrigerated.
