    Mint Chocolate Truffles

    Source of Recipe


    From "The Southern Living Party Cookbook"

    List of Ingredients


    • ⅓ cup plus 2 Tbsp semisweet mint chocolate chips
    • 1 (8-ounce) package ⅓-less-fat cream cheese, softened
    • 1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar
    • cup unsweetened cocoa or sifted powdered sugar


    Instructions


    1. Place ⅓ cup of the mint chocolate chips in a glass bowl, and microwave at high 1 minute or until almost melted, stirring until smooth. Cool.

    2. Add the cream cheese to the melted chocolate chips; beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add one package powdered sugar, and beat until well blended. Spread the mixture in an 8-inch square pan; cover and chill 8 hours.

    3. Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls, cover, and freeze 3 to 4 hours. Remove from the freezer, and roll the truffles in the cocoa or powdered sugar.

    4. Microwave the remaining 2 tablespoons chocolate chips in a small glass bowl, and microwave at high 20 to 30 seconds or until melted.

    5. Transfer to a small ziplock plastic bag; seal. Snip a tiny hole in a corner of the bag; drizzle the chocolate over the truffles. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving.

      Serves 24
