How do I make Chocolate Truffles?
First, you will want to place your cream cheese into a medium-sized bowl and beat until smooth.
Once the cream cheese is smooth, gradually add in the powdered sugar a little at a time and continue to beat until smooth.
Add in the vanilla and chocolate and beat until you have once again reached a smooth consistency.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
After one hour, use a 2-inch cookie scoop and create perfectly round truffles.
How do I decorate truffles?
To decorate, I like to use melting chocolate candies in different colors and dip with a fork. Then place them on waxed paper to completely harden. Once hardened, dip the truffles in the second coat of chocolate and coat with sprinkles or other toppings while still tacky. Allow the truffles to completely harden before serving.
You can also add nuts, coconut shavings, and more for decorating. Let your imagination run wild.
How long do truffles last?
Since we are using cream cheese, it’s best to store these truffles in the refrigerator. You can safely store these truffles for a full two weeks in a cool environment.
Can you freeze chocolate truffles?
Chocolate Truffles can be frozen for longer keeping if desired. Make sure you place them in an airtight container and you can store these in the freezer for up to six months.
I hope you love these Chocolate Truffles as much as we do. They are not hard to make and are a great holiday gift-giving idea.
