  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. 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.


  • Notes
  • Roll truffles in ground walnuts (or any ground nuts), cocoa, coconut, confectioners' sugar, candy sprinkles, etc.
  • To flavor truffles with liqueurs or other flavorings, omit vanilla. Divide truffle mixture into thirds. Add 1 tablespoon liqueur (almond, coffee, orange) to each mixture; mix well.

Absolutely divine! I read some other reviews and found that some had trouble rolling. I, by accident, found a combination of chocolate that makes it easier to roll and, less time to sit in the...

Great recipe. I'm only giving it 4 out of 5 because I had so much trouble keeping it from melting in my hands while rolling despite the length of time I refrigerated. Granted, I've never rolled...

One word - EASY! I made 2 batches of these during the holidays. The first I followed to the letter and they were insanely easy to make. However, I found them too sweet and a little too hard as o...

These came out wonderfully! only used 2 cups of powdered sugar. I also added in 1/2 cup cream. In half of it, I used raspberry extract and ended up tripling it to get it the right taste. I rol...
