Maple Cream Truffles

  • 1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple flavoring
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 tablespoon Crisco

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and maple flavoring until smooth. Stir in walnuts.
  2. Use a one tablespoon ice cream scoop and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Put them in the freezer until firm enough to shape into balls; place back on the baking sheets. Freeze until firm.
  3. In the microwave melt the chips and Crisco. Stir every 30 seconds. Dip balls and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until hardened.
