Easy and Decadent? Bring on the holiday pounds!

I came across this SUPER EASY recipe for truffles the other day.  I'm going to make a couple batches this weekend (in all my spare time) and spread some holiday cheer!  These would be perfect for teachers, the mailman, Santa or even yourself!  Enjoy!
(Photo/Recipe from All Recipes.com)  Check out more here
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until well blended. Stir in melted chocolate and vanilla until no streaks remain. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Shape into 1 inch balls.

  • Roll truffles in ground walnuts (or any ground nuts), cocoa, coconut, confectioners' sugar, candy sprinkles, etc.

  • To flavor truffles with liqueurs or other flavorings, omit vanilla. Divide truffle mixture into thirds. Add 1 tablespoon liqueur (almond, coffee, orange) to each mixture; mix well.



  • Enjoy this last special weekend before Christmas!
