Holiday Recipe Countdown: Chocolate Truffles

10:51 AM

As simple as 1,2,3. This easy truffle recipe is great as is, but has endless possibilities. 

Chocolate Truffles
Serves: 30+


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted

  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla


In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until well blended. Stir in melted chocolate and vanilla until no streaks remain. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Shape into 1 inch balls. A melon baller works great for shaping and for making equally sized truffles.

If desired, roll truffles in unsweetened cocoa powder, place in mini cup-cake liners when finished.

Other toppings and ideas include: ground nuts, coconut, sprinkles, drizzle with white chocolate or dip truffle in milk chocolate for a firm shell, flavor chocolates with liquors and other flavors, omitting the vanilla. 

You go from here and have fun with it!

We kept ours simple, opting to coat them in unsweetened cocoa powder. They were fabulous.
