Easiest Dark Chocolate Truffles Ever {3 ingredients}

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!

 Leave your creativity in the comments!


  1. I have had these at Kammy's and they are muy delicioso!!!

  2. I wanted a truffles recipe to make and I trust you, so I am going with this one!

  3. I made truffles using this or a similar recipe several years ago & they were as good as anything from a confectioners' shop! I rolled some in cocoa powder & also made some with a mocha flavor by adding a little instant coffee powder to the mix. Now I'm craving chocolate!

  4. I'm here from Show Me What Ya Got and I think I know what one of hub's gifts will be. He's a certified chocoholic (so am I; wonder how many he'll actually get teehee). And it's simple. That's my kind of recipe. Thanks.

  5. Awesome! I remember you showing me this recipe, I think I'll make it for my work Christmas party!
