These were great, but I made a few changes to the recipe, since other reviewers said it was too sweet:
I used 2 cups of confectioners' sugar instead of 3
I used Neufchatel cheese (it was all I had at the time) instead of cream cheese
I used 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips instead of 3
I separated the recipe (excluded the extract) into 4 different tupperware containers, and added 1 tsp of different extracts to each container to make different flavors (don't forget to label which one is which!). I put it in the fridge for 2 hours to harden. The chocolate melts in your hands easily while you're balling it up, so you have to really work quickly. The combinations I came up with were:
Vanilla extract rolled in sprinkles
Peppermint extract rolled in crushed candy canes (one of my faves)
Almond extract rolled in crushed almonds
Coconut extract rolled in shredded coconut (my other favorite)
Melted peanut butter added to the chocolate mixture with peanut butter drizzle
I put each truffle in a mini baking cup for easy serving/less mess, put it in tupperware and kept it in the fridge for 24 hours before serving and they tasted delicious!
The taste was perfect and I got many compliments on them! I feel the recipe as written would have been too sweet for my liking, but the idea is fantastic!
