Cream Cheese Chocolate Truffles

These decadent truffles are not only a perfect no-bake Valentine treat but they looks so elegant as well.

Cream Cheese Chocolate Truffles


1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons heavy cream
3 cups confectioners sugar
10 ounces dark chocolate, melted
10 ounces milk chocolate,  melted
2 tablespoons instant coffee
2 teaspoons vanilla.

If desired, you can roll truffles into confectioner's sugar, cocoa powder, chopped nuts, coconut or sprinkles.
Melting chocolate disks if you would like to coat truffles

In a small bowl, stir the instant coffee into the heavy cream until dissolved.

In a large bowl beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in cream/coffee then confectioners sugar until well blended.

Stir in the melted dark and milk chocolate and vanilla until no streaks remain. Refrigerate mixture for one hour.

Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat, parchment paper or waxed paper.  Using a melon-baller or spoon, scoop chocolate and shape into 1-inch balls.  Refrigerate for another hour.

If you would like to coat the truffles as I did, melt additional chocolate; coat each truffle with the melted chocolate and return to baking sheet.  Refrigerate until firm.

Store between layers of waxed paper in covered container in refrigerator.

Makes 50-60 truffles

While Keri was here this past weekend, we made Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies to send to her cousins for Valentine's Day.  I melted the candy disks in the microwave and Keri did the decorating.
