Light Chocolate Truffles
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
Makesabout 1-1/2 dozen
I was able to roll these out without too much trouble. I started out mixing with an electric mixer, but switched to by hand after adding the sugar. At first the mixture seemed very dry and crumbly, but after a lot of mixing, it finally came together. I had some leftoever crushed candy canes and rolled some of the balls in those and really like the flavor.
Made these and they were very yummy. But I agree, it is difficult to form into the balls because the mixture is not firm enough and they are still not firm after refrigeration. I am going to try more powdered sugar and cocoa to hopefully firm them up.
My mixture was not soft but it was crumbly and did not form well either. I used the ingredients as specified and I didn't enjoy it at all.
Made this recipe today and was disappointed. The mixture was not firm and I had to first chill the mixture abt an hour. The mixture was still soft so I then dropped it onto a wax paper lined tray with a small cookie scoop and chill again. After abt two hours of chilling I was able to form balls but the mixture was still very soft. I coated in the cocoa, layered between wax paper in a plastic container and refrigerated. After saying all that, the truffles are still soft balls and not firm like a traditional truffle
The recipe didn't stick to my hands as the previous reviewer said but we didn't find them to be yummy. I did use fat-free cream cheese which I thought might have changed the flavor and sweetness. I may try again using the reduced fat cream cheese as the recipe specifies.
I could not get the mixture to form a ball, it all just gooped to my sugared hands. Just put it in an 9x13 pan put in refrig and hoped it would hardened up, but it didn't.
