Easy Peasy Chocolate Truffles

I absolutely love rich chocolate truffles, this recipe will make around 30 truffles. You can vary the coatings to suit your taste, but following on with the coconut theme i will be coating mine in desiccated coconut!


  • 100 g softened cream cheese
  • 175 g sifted icing sugar
  • 250 g of melted plain chocolate
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is smooth. The slowly beat in the icing sugar until it is all well combined.
  2. Carefully stir in the melted chocolate and vanilla essence, until there are no streaks in the mixture.
  3. Refrigerate the mixture for about 1 hr and then shape into truffles
  4. Once all of the mixture has been used up, roll the truffles in any coating of your choice, in my case desiccated coconut!
