Don't skip these scrumptious truffles -they're low-fat and heavenly. Indulge guilt-free with your loved one tonight!
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 ounces light cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or rum or almond)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 Melt chocolate chips in a microwavable glass bowl for 1 minute until just melted. Stir with a spatula until smooth.
2 Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add melted chocolate and vanilla; mix until smooth and creamy.
3 Add cocoa powder and mix until blended. The mixture will be crumbly at first but will come together as a dough.
4 Gradually add sugar and beat until the dough is soft and creamy.
5 Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Dip and roll balls into shallow bowls of either sifted confectioner's sugar or sifted cocoa powder.
6 Place truffles on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Chill for at least an hour.
