How to make it

  1. In a medium bowl, combine white chocolate, cream, extract and food coloring if desired. Melt in a microwave in 15-20 second intervals, stirring well each time, just until melted.Meanwhile, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.
  2. Add melted white chocolate and whisk or beat on low, just until combined (do not overmix!). Cover and place in the fridge to set, at least 6-8 hours or overnight.Scoop out 1" balls using a teaspoon, roll until smooth and place on a plate (I get about 20).
  3. Place in the freezer for 1 hour.In a very small pot, bring 1" of water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and place a glass bowl over top, so that it is resting on the pot and not touching the water.
  4. Add the dark chocolate and melt, stirring frequently.When melted, dip each truffle and place on a plate or baking sheet to set in the refrigerator. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for up to 4 months.
