    Ingredients:

    *Filling*
    1/2 cup Land O LakesĀ® Butter, softened
    3 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    4 cups powdered sugar
    *Coating*
    1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2 tablespoons shortening
    Chocolate shavings, chocolate sprinkles or decorator sprinkles, as desired

    Suggested Items:
    Electric Mixer
    waxed paper
    1-quart saucepan

    Directions:

    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.)

    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.

    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.
