  • I make truffles, it's just chocolate and cream cheese. Melt 1 box of Bakers choc and mix w/ 8 oz. softened cream cheese. Beat cr cheese, add the 1 box of melted choc. put in frig. until hard about an hr or so. Take out and make into 36 balls. Melt 1 box of 2nd Bakers Choc. and dip balls into that. Top w/ peanuts crushed or those colored jimmies. Very easy and just about melt in your mouth. You do have to keep them in the frig all the time after you make them or at least I did.
