Baking cakes and making candy is my language of love during the holiday season. So when I decided to join my friends Andrea, Jessica and Angie for a whole week about Christmas in Jars, I knew that making something sweet was the way to go. But I also wanted to do something super easy. After trying a few different recipes, I kind of stumbled upon this by trial and error – white chocolate cream cheese truffles. Y’all. I can’t even describe how delicious these are. So to give them a little holiday flair, I decided to call them Snowball truffles. This is hands down one of the easier recipes I’ve ever made (it rivals my 2 minute Nutella fudge!) With only three ingredients you’re going to love how quick you can make these!
- One 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
- 8 oz. of Baker’s white chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
Whip the cream cheese until smooth using a mixer. Melt the chocolate. With a mixer, incorporate the melted chocolate one spoon at a time until all incorporated. Spoon the mixture out into a glass pie pan and chill in refrigerator for 2-3 hours until firm.
Once mixture is firm, use a small scoop (or a spoon) to dip out equal portions and drop into powdered sugar. Dust your hands with powdered sugar, then roll the truffles until they are round. Roll around in powdered sugar and chill until served.
This recipe makes 20 truffles (using a small baking scoop) – but you could double or triple it for parties.
Place them in a jar, then tie on a ribbon for gift giving. Your friends and family will thank you profusely.
Snowball Truffles are so easy to make, it really only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time. And they melt in your mouth like little bites of heaven. They’re so addictively good!
And if you’re a blogger, stop by on Friday and join the Christmas in Jars link party – we’d love to see you there!!!
