I made these in three flavors: grand marnier, peppermint and just plain chocolate. Rolled the peppermint truffles in Hershey’s Candy Cane kisses that I chopped fine, the grand marnier truffles got chocolate dipped and the plain got rolled in cocoa powder with a dollup of chocolate on top. Gorgeous! I’ve listed some other ideas for mix-ins and toppings – but I’d love to hear your thoughts too! The possibilities are endless!
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

- In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until well blended.
- Melt chocolate(s) over double boiler stirring often until smooth. Add to cream cheese mixture along with cream and vanilla. Stir until no streaks remain. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Using a melon baller, shape into 1 inch balls.
