Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package strawberry cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract
  • 1 (12 ounce) package white chocolate chips
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 ounces red candy melts for decoration (optional)

Instructions

  • Place the cream cheese in a bowl and mix with a hand mixer on high for about a minute. Add the strawberry extract and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave on 50% power. Start with 1 minute, then stir, then microwave for an additional 15-30 seconds at a time until completely melted and smooth.
  • Add the white chocolate to the cream cheese and mix until combined.
  • Scoop the mixture with a spoon or a small cookie scoop and drop the balls onto wax paper.
  • Refrigerate until the truffle balls become firm, at least 1 hour.
  • Melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips, using the same method as above.
  • Remove the truffle balls from the refrigerator, dip in the melted chocolate, and place back on the wax paper.
  • Refrigerate until hardened.
  • If desired, melt the red candy melts in the microwave, then drizzle over the chocolate covered truffles for a festive Valentine's Day treat!

Notes

  • Strawberry extract can be tough to find. Yu can substitute another citrus-y extract if needed, as the strawberry cream cheese helps to keep the strawberry flavor.
  • A double boiler can be handy for melting chocolate, however the microwave method works well, just be careful not to overdo it!
  • Change up the colors of the drizzle or even add sprinkles to fit any holiday or special occasion!
