Cream Cheese Truffles

Cream cheese truffles are surprisingly easy to make, but the end product looks like a gourmet chocolate product. Basically, you are mixing four ingredients together and then chilling the “dough” until it is cold enough to roll into balls.  Click here to jump to recipe.

Then comes the fun part to finish the truffles.  And here is where they are a crowd pleaser.  You can make something for everyone in one recipe.  Roll truffles in nuts, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, coconut, cookie crumbs, candy sprinkles or whatever else your guests like.

I wanted pink ones, so I put powdered sugar in a food processor and added a few drops of gel food coloring. After processing, I had pale pink powdered sugar, which was fun to say, and it rolled nicely onto the truffles too.
