Ingredients

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 drop green food coloring gel
  • ½ cup semi-sweet mini chocolate morsels
  • 12 oz chocolate coating, melted (feel free to use the dark or the white chocolate, or both)

Instructions

  1. Beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Add sugar, peppermint extract and food coloring. Beat until well combined.
  2. Fold in chocolate morsels.
  3. Using a 1 tbsp scoop, drop onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Freeze for about an hour (more is fine).
  4. Using a toothpick, pick up the truffle and dip it into the melted chocolate, tapping the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate. If desired, add a couple of mini morsels for garnish. Store in refrigerator for up to a week.
