Easy Decadent Truffles
The recipe was simple, which I loved since I tend to mess up recipes. I halved the recipes and made 30, which was more than plenty. The chocolates were sweet. I used crushed up graham crackers, crushed up peanut butter chocolate chips, and melted white chocolate as my toppings. Overall, everyone liked them, I would make them again.
And my only complaint is that it does NOT take 1 hour to make these. The time given on the recipe is very misleading. They have you start off with melted chocolate, which is something you have to prepare right before (even if it doesn't take too long). You have to wait for the cream cheese to soften. Including ingredient preparations, I would say I spent about 20 minutes prior to putting the dough in the fridge for an hour. Then the rolling process took much longer than expected. The dough was crumbly and wasn't sticking together at first, so you have to roll it and soften the dough in your hand in order to get a nice looking solid ball. It took about 1-2 minutes per truffle to do this, times 30 truffles is 30-60 minutes additional. And if you plan on doing toppings, you should take time to account for that as well.
It's still a good recipe, and I would definitely recommend you give it a try. But don't think you're going to finish the entire recipe with toppings in an hour. I would allot at least 3 hours if you're doing it on your own.
