- 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 4 ounces light cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add melted chocolate and mix until smooth and creamy. Add cocoa powder and mix until blended. The mixture will be crumbly at first but will come together as a dough. Gradually add sugar and beat until the dough is soft and creamy.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls (this is messy!). Dip and roll balls into shallow bowls of either sifted confectioner's sugar or sifted cocoa powder. Place truffles on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Chill for at least an hour.
Makes 20 truffles
