Several years ago, in a magazine, I found a recipe for a quick and easy way to make chocolate truffles. I think it was similar to the microwave fudge recipe, but was a bit different. Truffles could be made with or without liqueurs and there were also several "coatings" you could roll the truffles in to finish them off for presentation and to differentiate the various flavors. After moving, my recipe has disappeared and I would like to make the truffles for holiday parties and gifts this year. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance to all you "sweet-tooths" out there.

I am an independent Watkins associate, and we have a great recipe for Chocolate Truffles:
Melt chocolate in microwave on high for 60 seconds. Stir and continue cooking on high for another 30 seconds or until completely melted.
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar and continue beating until well-blended. Stir in chocolate, vanilla, and extracts. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in cocoa, sugar, nuts, etc. or dip in melted chocolate. Store in refrigerator. Makes approximately 3 dozen truffles.
Try this: Use white chocolate in place of the semi-sweet and follow same directions or use white chocolate for dipping.
Hope this helps!
