Cheese and Chocolate Truffles

Caution : Addictive food Ahead.

Yes you read it right... Two of the most addictive things in the world.. indeed make an addictive truffle in the world... Now if you  have tasted red velvet cake then you know what magic cream cheese creates as a frosting... and if you have had ravioli, you would know what spell Ricotta does on you... and Chocolate... I mean.. Hello! I am still looking for a person who would resist a tiny miny piece of chocolate... Even the one who claim they don't like chocolate( hush hush.. I do make that claim) do not say no to a small piece of it.. 

So, I had these ingredients lying around my refrigerator and I wanted to consume them in an un conventional way... So I started mixing and matching and voila! I created one of the most amazing sweet treats I have ever tasted in my life.... Its easy.. Its delicious and it involves no cooking.. umm yaa but few seconds in Microwave.. Not sure if that would count as cooking... Anyways... Make this and you will be hooked.... 

Ingredients : 

  1. Cream Cheese (Room Temperature) : 1/4 cup
  2. Ricotta Cheese (Room Temperature) : 1/4 cup
  3. Mixed Dried Fruits& Cherries : 2 tbsp
  4. Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips : 1/4 cup
  5. Vanilla Essence : 1 tsp
  6. Coco Powder : 4 Tbsp
  7. Powdered Sugar : 1/4 cup

To Coat/Garnish : 

  1. Coconut Flakes
  2. Coco Powder

Method : 

Mix everything together very well and microwave for 1 minute. Make sure your cheese are at room temperature otherwise, the truffles would be uneven and the flavor will not be able to develop. The last thing you want is to taste bland ricotta in your chocolate truffle. If required, used hands to make sure the mixture if well combined. 

Once cooled enough to handle, make small balls of this mixture, you can use 1.2 teaspoon measuring spoon to measure uniformly. Coat in coconut flakes and Coco powder and set to chill in an air tight container for 1-2 hours. Its ready....  Enjoy with anything, before or after anything... 

P.S : Do not keep it in a transparent container at an eye level of your refrigerator, otherwise overtime you open your fridge, your hand will automatically grab a piece. Do it at your own risk.
