This is a recipe that my mom used to make around the holidays. We even quadrupled it and used it at my sister's wedding.

These are really great and easy to make! Just make sure the cream cheese is room temperature as it makes it easier to mix. Also, after I rolled out the balls, I cooled some of them in the refrigerator for an hour so they set and then I coated those balls in chocolate. The room temperature balls I rolled in the sugar first and it seemed to stick better. The mix of the chocolate covered and sugar covered balls were a hit. Thanks!
