CHOCOLATE HOMEMADE TRUFFLES


Ingredients:

2.5 pkgs BAKER's semi-sweet chocolate (break up into small pieces)

8 oz softened Cream Cheese

Optional - very finely chopped nuts, sprinkles, cocoa or chocolate drink powder, cake/cookie decorating icing

1. Melt 8 chocolate squares under low heat

2. Beat cream cheese with mixer until creamy

3. Add melted chocolate into cream cheese and blend well

4. Refridgerate mixture until firm (like play dough)

5. Remove from refrigerator and form into balls (about half to 3/4 the size of golf balls)

6. Place on waxed papered cookie sheet. Push each ball down very gently to form a small, flat bottom

7. Melt remaining chocolate

8. Gently poke top of each ball with a fork and then dip it into the melted chocolate

9. After dipping each ball, set it back onto the waxed paper and top with optional toppings. But wait until all balls are done being dipped if you want to use the icing.

10. Refrigerate at least 1 hour

11. Serve from a pretty plate or put into individual paper/foil candy cups
