All you need is.... are you ready for this..... cream cheese,semi-sweet baking squares, and something to roll them in for coating (I like powdered sugar)!
Super Easy Dark Chocolate Truffles
1 8 oz brick of cream cheese
8 semi sweet* chocolate squares (or you can use chocolate chips - the recipe isn't picky on the amount, as long as there is at least 8 ounces or more).
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sprinkles, or cocoa
Microwave chocolate until just barely melted. Stir until completely smooth. (Never overheat chocolate!) Add softened cream cheese (room temperature or soften in the microwave for 15 seconds). Beat until smooth with mixer. Refrigerate for an hour. Form into balls by rolling about a tablespoon or two in the palm of your hands and then roll the ball in your choice of powdered sugar, cocoa, or sprinkles. Make sure the sprinkles are pressed in good. Pop back into the fridge for a wee bit. Help! I can't stop eating them!!
*To make the dark chocolate more intense, I substituted a square of unsweetened chocolate for one of the semi-sweet ones.
You can also melt almond bark, chocolate chips, or chocolate baking squares to dip them in with a fork. If you choose to dip them, set them on wax paper until they have hardened.
Gift idea: put some in a clear container with a big Christmas bow!
Perfect for any chocolate lover!
