Chocolate Cream Cheese Truffles

Chocolate Cream Cheese Truffles 

I went on a truffle binge and made notes on each of the recipes I tried.  The personal note I left is down below.  I know I'm obsessed but it's handy so I don't repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

Servings: 2 dozen

1/2 cup chocolate chips
4 oz. light cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
Extra cocoa or confectioners' sugar, for rolling OR:
3 tbsp. ground almonds

1. Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl and microwave for 1 minute, until almost melted. Stir until smooth and set aside to cool slightly.

2. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add chocolate and beat again until smooth.

3. Add cocoa and 1 cup of confectioners' sugar and stir until well blended. Add remaining confectioners' sugar and stir until you have a soft dough. The mixture will seem dry -- it may be easier to use your hands for final mixing.

4. Put about 1/4 cup cocoa, confectioners' sugar or ground almonds into a shallow dish. Shape chocolate mixture into 1" - 1 1/4" balls and roll in cocoa, confectioners' sugar, or ground almonds to coat. Place on a sheet of waxed paper and refrigerate until chilled.

Makes 2 dozen truffles.

Note: Very good, creamy and tasty. Taste best rolled in chopped nuts of any kind. I tried almonds and tasted just fine. Would be a good recipe to dip in chocolate. Was hard for almonds to adhere to chocolate balls. Took evaporated milk and rubbed chocolate ball in hands and picked up the nuts great.
