Thanksgiving Point sends me a monthly calendar (Gazette) and in February 2014 there was this yummy recipe for truffles - easy and so good.
1-8oz package cream cheese, softened
3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted (I used milk chocolate)
1 1/2 t vanilla
1. In a large bowl beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until well blended.
2. Stir in melted chocolate and vanilla until no streaks remain. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
3. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in ground walnuts (or any ground nuts), cocoa, coconut, confectioners' sugar, or candy sprinkles.
