1/3 cup semisweet mint-chocolate morsels
4 ounces Neufchâtel cheese, softened
1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 tablespoons semisweet mint-chocolate morsels


Place 1/3 cup morsels in a medium glass bowl, and microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until morsels are almost melted, stirring until smooth. Let cool.

Add the cheese to melted morsels, and beat at medium speed of a mixer until smooth. Add 1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar to cheese mixture; beat until well-blended.

Press mixture into a 6-inch square on heavy-duty plastic wrap, and cover with additional plastic wrap. Chill at least 1 hour.

Remove top sheet of plastic wrap; cut mixture into 48 squares. Roll each square into a ball, and place on wax paper. Roll half of balls in cocoa; roll remaining balls in 1/4 cup powdered sugar.

Place 2 tablespoons morsels in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag, and microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until morsels are softened. Knead bag until smooth. Snip a tiny hole in corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over balls rolled in cocoa. Serve at room temperature.

Note: Store truffles in a single layer in an airtight container in freezer for up to 1 month. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour before serving.
