How to make Easy Cream Cheese Truffles

To make these truffles start by melting your chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Once melted add the chocolate to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix with your softened cream cheese. Stir in powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Place the truffles in the fridge to firm up for an hour. Once chilled roll into 8 truffles.

After your truffles have chilled roll them in your favorite toppings like shredded coconut, cocoa powder, powdered sugar or my favorite dipped in chocolate and then rolled in pecans.
