  • Combine whipping cream and butter in 2 quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted [4 to 5 minutes]. Add creme de menthe baking chips. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or freeze 1 hour until firm.
  • Dust hands with powdered sugar or cocoa. Working quickly, shape mixture into 1 inch balls. Place balls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, melt candy coating in deep 1 quart saucepan over low heat; stir until smooth. Stir in food color until well mixed. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes.
  • Remove truffles from refrigerator. Place 1 truffle in candy coating mixture. Use small spoon to coat truffle; immediately remove and place onto waxed paper. Repeat with remaining truffles. Refrigerate until coating is set.
  • Drizzle each truffle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate until set. Place truffles in paper or foil candy cups. Store refrigerated in container with tight-fitting lid up to 2 weeks.
