Recipe: White Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles

Popping in today to share one of the easiest recipes I've ever brought you.

Let's bring together 3 ingredients, top them with sprinkles, never turn our oven on and call it a treat. With only a few more sleeps until Christmas and time running out, I thought I would share these incredibly easy, no-baking required truffles.

I will say that though this recipe is easy, it is a bit messy just FYI. I think this would be a fun treat to make with kids, where they can get their hands a little dirty and create something that doesn't have to go in the oven. If you are going to make this with little kiddo hands, I would recommend melting extra white chocolate to cover the truffles so you have more room to make a mess.  

White Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles

Yields 36 truffles

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
24 oz white chocolate chips, separated into 8 oz and 16 oz
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
sprinkles or nonpareils (optional)

In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until smooth. Melt 8 oz of white chocolate chips in the microwave and add into the cream cheese, along with the vanilla extract. Mix until combined and refrigerate for 1 hour or until filling is stiff.

Remove from the refrigerator and roll your filling into 36 small balls about the size of a large marble. Place on a plate and freeze for 30 minutes to hardened slightly.

Melt the rest of the white chocolate and begin dipping your filling into the white chocolate. Remove each ball with a fork, slightly shake off some of the extra chocolate and place each truffle on a piece of wax paper or a nonstick baking mat to dry. Decorate with sprinkles or nonpareils and let the chocolate set completely before enjoying.
