Milk Chocolate Cream Cheese Truffles

Total Time

These are very dense as truffles go, rich and yummy! Change the type of chips you use or add a teaspoon of flavoring to change the flavor. They keep very well. I get my dipping chocolate in the bulk foods department at our local grocery store.

This is one of the best Truffle Recipes. A great addition is to roll these in crushed toffy before dipping.

I used mint chips. Dipped them in semi sweet chocolate then drizzled with white. Thanks!

This is a great truffle recipe, and incredibley easy. I tried them tonight and they taste great. I'm not all that great in the kitchen so if i can do them anyone can! These will satisfy any sweet tooth as they are quite rich.
