Midnight Truffles

So I have decided to call these midnight truffles because of their smooth dark chocolate insides. I had 60% cocoa bars on hand so that's what I used, but I am dying to make these again with 70% or 80% for a real sweet indulgence.

For those of you that aren't so into dark chocolate, feel free to sub it out for milk chocolate, but keep the semi-sweet as this helps to add a bit of something extra.

The best part of these truffles is the time and effort it takes to get to the finished product (read: minimal). In 3 simple steps, your ready to roll (see what I did there?!) and add your toppings. These are such a great treat to bring to a party, as your friends are sure to be impressed while you sit back and laugh at what a breeze they are to make.

8 oz cream cheese (Philadelphia is really good because its so creamy)
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate
1 1/2 cups 60% cocoa chocolate (or darker if you prefer)
Toppings: sprinkles, nonpareils, cocoa powder, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, you name it!

Let the cream cheese soften at room temperature and mix together with the confectioners' sugar until smooth.

Add your chocolate to a bowl resting over a simmering pot of water and melt the chocolate. Whisk every so often to make sure all the chunks are smooth and melted.

Pour the melted chocolate over the sweetened cream cheese and mix to fully combine. Place in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.

Using a cookie scoop (or a tablespoon), place evenly sized balls of chocolate onto a lined tray and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. By doing so, you will better be able to roll the balls into perfect spheres and shape them without the chocolate melting and sticking all over your hands.

Once they are firm, cover in the toppings of your choice, I went with the cocoa powder and nonpareils. Eat right away or keep refrigerated until it is time to serve. Let sit at room temperature for a bit before serving. Enjoy!
