So this year i made Christmas candy. One thing i made new, this year was truffles. I made coconut cream w dark chocolate and mint chocolate cream with white chocolate. This is a pic of the filling setting in the fridge.
I got the recipe from http://www.kraft.com/ and i made a little modification to it. There are many recipes for truffles to choose from so check them out if you want.
And than the finish product. Everytime i make something its always a learning experience, i learn what not to do and what i should have done to improve to make it even better. Melting in the microwave is so much easier and less likely to over heat chocolate like on the stove.
I was told they were quite a hit(mostly the coconut ones). can't wait to try out a different flavor.
8oz of Bakers white chocolate or i was able to sub w white choco chips for this part(melt in microwave 30 sec at a time)
8oz of cream cheese soften
1.5 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. coconut extrat(can be sub for any flavor)
1/2 cup coconut flakes(use less or more as you desire)

12 oz bakers semi sweet bakers chocolate(you can not sub w choco chips)
