This title of this recipe really says it all! I made these today for a Super Bowl party tomorrow. They taste and look awesome. I did cut back the confectioner's sugar to 2 cups like other reviews said. I used a package of Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate that I had on hand and added about half a cup more of chocolate chips. I think this recipe is pretty forgiving which is great for me because I don't tend to measure things!
Your cream cheese definitely needs to be very soft. I started with it still pretty cold and it didn't mix up well. I stuck it in the microwave for about 15 seconds at half power and it was perfect. I pulled out about a third of the recipe and added about two tablespoons of peanut butter for variety. I think the peanut version is a little creamier and smoother.
I, along with my three year old daughter, rolled the balls in a variety of toppings including finely crushed graham crackers, red decorating sugar, cocoa powder, hot chocolate mix, and chocolate sprinkles. We laid them on wax paper lined cookie sheets when we were done and ultimately put them in the fridge in a sealed container in layers on the wax paper. Rolling them was a little messy, but they weren't too bad to deal with. We ended up with about 70 in all, including the ones we nibbled along the way!
