You-Have-All-of-the-Ingredients Truffles


I'm very wary of the "fast and easy" recipes because "fast and easy" doesn't always equal yummy. I tried this recipe today simply because I needed a Valentine's Day treat and I had all of the ingredients already. They even turned out surprisingly good. Happy Valentine's Day, make your hubby a special treat that just so happens to be fast and easy!

8 oz Cream Cheese
3 C. Powdered Sugar
3 C. Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1-1/2 tsp. Vanilla (or any combination of extracts that you want. I added some almond and I've heard it's also very yummy with raspberry)
Colored chocolate for decorating (optional)

Melt chocolate in a small sauce pan over low heat.
Cream together your cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add chocolate and extracts and continue to beat until there are no more white streaks. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour. Roll into balls (or press very firmly into molds), decorate or roll in nuts, cocoa powder, toasted coconut, etc, place on wax paper and return to fridge until they harden. Enjoy!
