       Some work friends and I did a marathon cookie baking session last week. We made tons of the classics. We each had lots of delicious cookies to make trays and spread some holiday cheer.

      Little Dude and I still have plans to make sugar cookies and decorate them with royal frosting as well. He has been looking forward to it for months.

     But I love to throw a few new things in each year. Cream cheese truffles have been on my mind for a while now, just waiting for a chance to be made.

       When a bottle of LorAnn Orange Emulsion showed up at my door, the lightbulb went off. Orange cheesecake bites with a chocolate shell!

Ding ding! We have a winner!

     Of course some Dixie Crystal powdered sugar helped make them sweet and delicious.  The inside was melt in your mouth good and my husband kept going back for one more.

frozen centers rolled into smooth balls.

      The filling whips up easily, but I definitely recommend giving them plenty of time in the freezer. That will make the rolling and dipping process go a lot easier.

     My husband also highly recommends eating them cold, even frozen. He liked them at room temperature as well, but not as much as when they were cold.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons orange emulsion
  • 1 pound chocolate

Instructions

  1. Beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add powdered sugar and orange emulsion, beating until completely incorporated.
  3. Use a small cookie scoop to portion about 2 teaspoons at a time onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place in freezer for at least an hour.
  4. After freezing for a while, roll the scooped mounds of cheesecake filling between your hands to form rounded balls. Return to the freezer for at least another hour or two. Overnight would be fine.

So hard to choose! I don’t have a family traditional recipe at this time, so I like trying new things each year. I like almond-based cookies, candies (like chocolate covered marzipan), & other desserts, as well as cheesecake! These truffles look so good!!
