Rudolph Chocolate Truffles

These cute truffles look just like Rudolphs nose!  You can choose to place them on a stick or leave them with out.  Or give them as a gift in a cellophane bag with a label saying "Reindeer Noses"!  Kids and adults will love these!

You'll Need:
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 bag red wafer melting chocolates
Over a double boiler melt the chocolate over medium heat.  Place the confectioners sugar and cream cheese in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer, slowly add in the melted chocolate and vanilla.  Beat until ingredients are incorporated.  Refrigerate mixture for at least 1 hour.  Once completely cooled begin shaping dough into bite size balls (up to you on how large you like them).  Place them onto parchment lined cookie sheet and allow to sit overnight (this will help the chocolate coating to adhere better).

The next day, melt the red wafer chocolates over a double boiler or in the microwave.  Begin dipping your balls in the chocolate and place them back onto the cookie sheet to set.
