2 Ingredient Truffles

How was everyones 4th? Did you all have fun, food, & Family? We sure did and not to mention we had some awesome fireworks! I did break down and make Miss A a shirt, I will add a little tutorial for you soon, here in Utah we still have the 24th to celebrate too! I thought I would share an easy recipe that reaps LOT & Lots of Praise! Besides it is super easy and cheap!

Do you have a love for the truffles but they all seem like a lot of work? Well these are defiantly the ones for you. They take little time and you only need 2 ingredients!  I found these when looking for fun treats for a cookie exchange I went to a while back. They are so easy and yummy. I think just the name Truffles People assume you went to lots of work ;)
Items Needed:
  • 1   8oz pack of Cream cheese
  • Chocolate (1 pkg of almond bark or 2 1/2 boxes of melting chocolate)
Start with whipping your cream cheese, while that is whipping melt half of your chocolate. Set the other half aside that is what you will coat your truffles with. I melted my Chocolate in the microwave 2 minutes and stirred and did 30 second intervals until it was all melted. Add the melted chocolate to your cream cheese and mix wellDSC08331AT this point you can go onto the next step and keep it 2 Ingredients or I like to try my luck and test different combos. I have added some mint extract to make them mint truffles, I have also whipped in a 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter (my husband and his work favorite!). If you want 2 types simply split the mix here and add different flavors (I am going to try orange next!). Next once you decide what flavor you would like and it is mixed in  scoop out your mix onto wax paper. I use a mini scoop so they stay similar in size. you can also use a spoon and drop them onto wax paper. DSC08335Refrigerate the balls for about 1 hr until firm enough to hold their shape in melted chocolate. I usually shape them into better ball shapes before I dip them. Melt your other half of chocolate, I added a little shortening because a very wise woman (Tara’s Mom!) told me a little shortening in your melted chocolate gives it a shinny coat!DSC08327Dip then decorate! You can add sprinkles to pretty them up,  I added some melted peanut butter to the peanut butter ones. You can also roll them in powdered sugar and coco powder if you don't want to dip them! DSC08339 Stand back and enjoy the praise!

  11. Brilliant recipy. I'll save this for when I need to impress in the future. I tried adding the peel and juice of two limes to the truffle bit, and if you're looking for new flavours, I'd reccommend it!

  12. how much chocolate exactly? How big are these boxes?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm making some of these now, and having a lot of fun! I used 8oz of semi-sweet baking chocolate. The one I've tried so far was pretty good, but I think I could have used more chocolate.

    Also, I want to let you know, that there should not be an apostrophe in "moms." You just want the plural of mom, with no apostrophe.

  29. About how many does it make?

  30. I made these for a dinner at work last week. Big mistake...Now I've been volunteered to bring them again tomorrow and at least 3 people have asked me for the recipe.

    To answer a few questions I saw on the comments as I scrolled through (a few of which have already been answered): I used chocolate almond bark (I think 1 package is 24 oz) and put half in the filling and saved half to dip. I've also used a different brand that's packaged as Quick & Easy candy coating but is basically the same thing and in the same size pack. Both of these are generally found around the chocolate chips and baking nuts at the grocery store.

    As for how many this recipe makes, ultimately that depends on how big you make them. Especially if you don't have a scoop to keep them all similar in size. If you add peanut butter or something similar, you can stretch the filling a little farther. Once I barely got a dozen out of the recipe, another time I think I got more like 15-18 truffles. Of course, that also depends on how much of the filling actually survives to become truffles and doesn't get eaten straight from the bowl.

    They are really easy to make. A little messy if you don't have a scoop and have to do all of the shaping and scooping by hand. The only thing is, they do take a while to make because of all the time it takes for them to chill. Since I was having to roll them out by hand after the filling chilled for the first hour, I put them back in the fridge to chill again before dipping. This probably isn't necessary but once they sit out, they start to soften up again.

    One thing I have noticed, if the truffles aren't kept cold, they do start to get like a sticky goo on the bottom. It doesn't affect the taste at all, it's just not quite as presentable. Not sure if this is from the almond bark or the cream cheese but it doesn't happen as bad if they're kept cold after making them. No one I've made these for has mentioned this so evidently it's not a big issue.
