Make Fancy Chocolate Truffles With Just Two Ingredients

Chocolate truffles cost a lot, but you can make them yourself easily with just two ingredients. All you need is two and a half boxes of melting chocolate and a container of cream cheese.

This recipe, from Philadelphia Cream Cheese, is very simple:

  • Whip the cream cheese
  • Melt half the chocolate
  • Add the chocolate to the cream cheese and mix well
  • Use a spoon (or something similar) and drop “balls” of mixture onto wax paper
  • Refrigerate the “balls” for about an hour, or until they are firm to hold their shape in melted chocolate. (Before next step, I usually roll better balls!
  • Melt the other half of the chocolate, and dip each ball into the chocolate mixture (you can add a little shortening to the chocolate while melting, to make them look shinier if you wish).

You can decorate them with sprinkles for added flair. Either way, you’ve made a tasty treat without much effort.
