Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cream-Filled Chocolates



8 oz. pkg cream cheese

3 1\2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp. peppermint*

1\3 + 1\4 cup mini chocolate chips

to dip:

chocolate chips and coconut oil


Beat cream cheese. Add the rest of the ingredients (except those for dipping) and mix together well. Put in the freezer to make more firm. Then, using a 1\2 tablespoon, make balls and drop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. You will probably need to use powdered sugar to keep it from sticking to bad while making balls. Place in freezer to firm up. 

Melt chocolate chips and coconut together, then take the balls from freezer and dip. Place back in freezer to harden. 

I would store these in the freezer.

   These were supposed to be truffles. I used another recipe as a guideline to make these, but the cream cheese mixture was way to un-thick. So instead they are cream chocolates. ;)

     And they're very good, with that mint and chocolate chips! :D Of course, I had to taste the finished product after taste-testing and picking at it while making it... I think it lessens the deliciousness when you already ate a bunch of sugar. ;P

   But if you're looking for a treat for Christmas-time, you can try this! :)
