Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles

Today is National Cheesecake Day! I've posted recipes for a variety of of chocolate cheesecakes,  from Pumpkin Cheesecakes to Double Chocolate Cheesecakes, so for today's food holiday, I thought I'd take a different approach. I love truffles, so here's a simple recipe for Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles. You'll love these! As always, use the very best chocolate. There are three different ways to coat these.. It's up to you!


8 ounces cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
5 ounces bittersweet dark chocolate, melted (I use 70% cacao)
1 tsp Madagascar vanilla

Coatings for truffles:
toasted pecans, chopped (or other nuts)
pulverized graham crackers (gives you a true cheesecake taste)
cocoa powder

Using mixer, slowly add powdered sugar to cream cheese mixing well after each addition. Add melted chocolate and vanilla and mix until smooth. Chill several hours. Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in coatings.

How easy is this?
