Easy Chocolate Truffles

Truffles mean that God is a woman. I’m just going to put that out there and leave it at that.

These are the easiest truffles that you can find to make, and that is saying something. Good truffles take some patience and time and a little artistry once in a while, and these require that as well, just not as much as usual.

Ingredients Needed:

OUR LATEST VIDEOS

2 1/2 packages of semi-sweet chocolate squares (20 squares)
1 package of cream cheese

Start by whipping your cream cheese. I used light, as you can see above, and it tasted fine. I am not sure why I bothered to use light cream cheese when I proceeded to slather it in chocolate, but you know, habit.

Take 8 of the chocolate squares and melt them in the microwave.

Mmmm. Melted chocolate.

If you want to use flavoring, you can now add 1 or two teaspoons of mint,almond or rum, or if you are so inclined 1/4 cup of your favorite liqueur, I think Kahlua would be amazing! Next year.

Pour the melted chocolate into your mouth the cream cheese mixture in the bowl, and proceed to whip them together thoroughly.

Ooooh yah, baby, lookit that. Now its time to refrigerate it for about an hour, until it’s firm enough to handle.

Once it’s firm, take about 2 teaspoons and roll it into a ball, placing on trays covered with wax paper.

Once those are rolled, it is time to dip! Melt the remaining chocolate squares (in the same container if you hate to do dishes like I do) and then dip each into the chocolate, using a fork. Once the chocolate has dripped off to an acceptable coating, place back on the cookie sheets.

Then you can garnish with whatever your heart desires; I have done little stars sprinkled on, you can do nuts or coconut or whatever you can think of. This year I used a tip and an icing bag and did white chocolate on top, a very delicious contrast.

    Do you suppose a person could melt Lindor chocolates for the outside coating? I was fantasizing about that today. The chocolate and cream cheese do indeed sound like they’ve arrived from heaven \U0001f60b

    I thought as much. Or even if I added a bit of sweetener, it’s less grainy then regular sugar and you don’t need as much.
    This time I’ll do it the hard way and next time I’ll make it exactly as you said lol, maybe for Christmas I’ll ask Santa for a mixer 😛

    Oh you’d have to use icing sugar and mix to taste. White sugar would be grainy!!

    You can definitely give it a shot! You just have to make sure they are creamy and mixed up completely!

    Frozen stuff is the best, I love butter tarts and chocolate chip cookies the best, although most is good!
