Truffles recipe!

Hi all!

I was asked to share a recipe for the truffles I made for the January Guest Designer challenge using kraft that was held last week.

Anyway, this recipe came from Kraftfoods magazine, I believe last December's issue.

Simply Sensational Truffles
Total: 15 min. plus refrigerating
Makes: 3 doz. or 18 servings, 2 truffles each

What you need:
2 1/2 pkg {20 squares} Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, divided
1 pkg. {8oz} Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened -(make sure it's Philadelphia! Offbrands just don't cut it!)

Make It:
Melt 8 chocolate squares. Beat cream cheese w/ mixer until creamy; stir in melted chocolate. Refrigerate until firm.
Shape into 36 balls. Place on wax paper-covered tray.
Melt remaining chocolate. Use fork to dip truffles; return to tray. Decorate, then refrigerate 1 hour. Refrigerate leftovers.

Now, when I made them, I made my balls bigger and got maybe 9 total. So, if you're making these for a lot of people, go for bite sized balls.
And, when I "dipped" them into the melted chocolate, that part didn't work for me. So, I poured the choc. over each ball. I also added sugar to the melted chocolate to make it sweeter.

Have fun!


  1. You have my address. I'll be waiting for mine!

  2. Can't wait to try this Erin, I'll let you know how mine turn out. Hopefully they make it into balls, I mean really do I hae to waste the time, couldn't I just eat it out of the bowl?

  3. Oh I love the kraft magazine that comes monthly! We've found some favorite recipes there. I don't remember this one but I'll have to give it a try...I'll try to remember to use the "real" cream cheese ;)


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!
