Chocolate Truffles

We had a recipe exchange at work about a year ago, and my very creative friend Alisa made this awesome recipe card design for the dessert she was sharing. I think it’s the most creative recipe card I have in my collection! Alisa did the art and hand lettering on it…she is so talented! 🙂  On top of that, these truffles are really good, too. If you love chocolate, you’ll love these…and you’ll love how easy they are to make!

I’m also including the recipe here below…

ALISA’S CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

  • 1 (8-ounce) package Cream Cheese
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 (1-ounce) squares semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Suggested coatings: ground walnuts, unsweetened cocoa, powdered sugar and/or coconut (I have also rolled these in red and green sugar crystals and other small decorative sprinkles…you can get as creative as you want!)

Beat cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Gradually add sugar, mixing until well blended. Add melted chocolate and vanilla; mix well. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in coatings.
