These chocolate cream cheese truffles are SUPER chocolatey and incredibly easy to make! You only need 4 ingredients to make them: cream cheese, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and whatever you want to roll them in.
  • 200g (or 7 ounces) cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 200g (or 1½ cup + 5 teaspoons) powdered sugar
  • 100g (or ¾ cup + 5 teaspoons) Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • chocolate sprinkles, cocoa powder, or desiccated coconut for rolling.
  1. Add the cream cheese to a medium-sized bowl and beat with a mixer fitted with whisk attachments until creamy and fluffy.
  2. Add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder and, using a fork, mash everything together until the dry ingredients have absorbed the cream cheese and the mixture is no longer powdery.
  3. Using just one of your hands, knead the mixture until well-combined and the dough comes together. You should be able to form it into a rough ball. You can also use a wooden spoon or a mixer for this, which is definitely the way to go if you don't like getting your hands dirty, but I've always done it like this.
  4. Divide the dough into about 20 equal chunks. Roll into balls. Washing your hands after rolling every six truffles or so makes the rolling a lot easier. Roll the balls into cocoa powder, chocolate sprinkles, or desiccated coconut.
  5. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container on the fridge until you're ready to serve them. The truffles keep for 3-5 days in the fridge.
