Chocolate Cherry Truffles


My first attempt at truffles. As always, my decorating skills need work but they taste good. 

INGREDIENTS

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

3 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped dried tart cherries 

8 ounces milk chocolate for melting

Sea Salt for topping

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until well blended. Stir in melted chocolate  until no streaks remain. Stir in cherries. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Shape into 1 inch balls. Freeze for 1 hour. 

Melt milk chocolate and dip frozen balls in chocolate.  Place on wax paper to harden.  Refrigerate.
