Chocolate truffles that won’t disappoint, in taste or in nutrition! Chocolatey, creamy, and totally delicious! These lighter babes are only 36 calories a piece! And with only 2 ingredients, this easy recipe can’t be beat! Use a light cream cheese or neufchâtel cheese to lighten these up, and instead of dipping the entire truffle in a chocolate coating, simply add a dusting of cocoa powder or drizzle of chocolate on top! Yum!
1/3 cup Chocolate chips
Chocolate drizzle optional
Cocoa powder optional, dusted on
8 oz Light cream cheese softened
Melt chocolate chips.
Mix melted chocolate with softened cream cheese until well combined, using either a spatula or hand mixer.
Use a spoon or cookie scoop (mine is 2 tsp) to create small truffle balls and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Place pan in the fridge and allow to chill until balls are hardened, a few hours.
Dust with cocoa powder and/or drizzle with chocolate.
Devour! Store in the fridge.
Serving: 1 truffle
