2 1/2 (8 ounce) packages
BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, divided
1 (8 ounce) package
PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
Suggested coatings: chopped PLANTERS COCKTAIL Peanuts, multi-colored sprinkles
These were wonderful. I divided the mixture into 3 parts; one orange, to which I added 1 T of triple sec; one almond, with 1 T of cream de almond and 1/2 tsp of almond extract; and one mocha, with 1 T Kalua and 1/2 tsp instant coffee. I decorated the tops to indicate the flavor; chocolate jimmies for the mocha, slivered almonds for the almond and orange zest mixed with large sugar crystals for the orange. These were a big hit at holiday party.
This was a fail! My truffles didn't come out so great and they wouldn't get hard enough to form nicely. They tasted nice (hence the 3 stars), but my family was trying to guess their forms (alien spaceship, easter egg, etc) and that was a bit harsh.
Simple, very good, fun to make. Lends itself to all kinds of variations including using dark chocolate on the outside or inside. I used a German Chocolate Bar for the outer chocolate coating and added just a bit of corn syrup to make it even better for dipping. Turned out great when rolled in crushed almonds or crushed peppermint.
I found this recipe in a holiday magazine years ago and I have been making them EVERY year since!! Huge hit at parties. I like to dip them in milk Chocole and then roll them in Girardelli Cocoa Powder...YUMMY!!! I have put raspberry jam in the center, added mint exract to the mixture, Hazel nuts; There is no limit to the combinations of flavors!!! The best part is they are SO easy to make!!
Very good! I was impressed by how easy and scrumptious these are. Also, I dipped some in white chocolate for an eye-catching contrast. YUM
you can crush one pack of oreos (any kind!!)and mix them with the cream cheese then dip them in the chocolate for oreo truffles
I used white and milk chocolate coating. Yummy with a couple mini M&M's make a sweet treat!
I made these and everyone loved them! Will definitely make them again,and might try using milk chocolate for the outer coating.
