I found some that were simple enough and tweaked them a bit to get these.
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
- 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Melt the other 1 cup of chocolate and dip truffles. Put them in the fridge for another 10 minutes or until chocolate sets.
After they were shaped and set, I dipped half of the batch in melted semi-sweet chocolate...creamy, rich outer shell. With the other half I rolled some in chopped pecans and some in unsweetened cocoa powder. (my favorite ones!)
They were super easy to make, used VERY few ingredients, taste AMAZING, and yielded about 60 truffles! Including rolling and chilling time, I think it was less than two hours from start to finish.
These are great for the holidays...maybe I'll have more family coming out to visit...my sister Hallie and my Mom are die-hard dark chocolate lovers.
Gotta Go! Truffles are calling!
