Cream cheese and chocolate are a perfect combo for melt-in-your-mouth truffles. Adding a little shortening to thechocolate as it melts makes the chocolate more fluid and easier to use for coating. It also makes the chocolate a little shinier once it has set. Transfer truffles to individual paper cups or mini muffin liners inside an airtight container and store in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • For red-and-white-striped truffles, use white chocolate instead of semisweet chocolate for the coating and skip the crumb topping. Tint remaining coating (left over from dipping the balls) with red gel food coloring, warm it gently, and drizzle over the chilled balls.
  • For brown-and-white-striped truffles, skip the crumb topping, and drizzle chilled balls with melted white chocolate.
