Have a Happy Valentines Day!
Be sure to use quality chocolate; I used Ghirardelli chocolate chips . My only other advice, is to hide them if you want them around long enough for the event you made them for. They magically disappear!
1-8 oz pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips, melted
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons *vanilla
In a large bowl beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in powdered sugar a little at a time until smooth and creamy. Blend in melted chocolate and vanilla until well blended. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in cocoa, powdered sugar, finely chopped nuts, colored sprinkles, dip in chocolate etc... They are a bit messy to make, but so worth it!
Makes about 50-60 Truffles
* you can try other flavors, just omit the vanilla and add 2 tablespoons of Irish cream, Kahlua, brandy, rum just about anything you can dream up.
