Use a sturdy wooden pick to dip well-chilled or frozen balls.
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup seedless raspberry preserves
2 tablespoons raspberry liqueur
1 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
10 (2-ounce) chocolate candy coating squares
3 (1-ounce) white chocolate squares
1 tablespoon shortening
How to Make It
Microwave chocolate morsels in a 4-cup glass measuring cup at HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds.
Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add melted chocolate, preserves, and liqueur, beating until blended. Stir in crumbs; cover and chill 2 hours.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls; cover and freeze 1 hour or until firm.
Microwave chocolate coating in a 4-cup glass measuring cup at HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip balls in coating; place on wax paper.
Place white chocolate and shortening in small heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Submerge in hot water until chocolate melts; knead until smooth. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag, and drizzle mixture over truffles. Let stand until firm. Store in refrigerator or freezer, if desired.
I made these last Valentine's Day for Boyfriend, and he is still talking about them. I am looking forward to making them again this year. They are a special treat for any occasion, and they are delicious....
These truffles are wonderful. I made lots of candy this year to give out as gifts, and everyone really enjoyed these. I left out the rasberry liquor (only because I didn't have time to go get any) and they were still very good. I would definatly make these again.
These are so rich and delicious. They're great to give as gifts to teachers, coaches, hostess gifts, etc. The taste so wonderful people can't believe you made them yourself! I do find that the recipe requires more chocolate candy coating then called for to be able to cover all the pieces - but you can easily melt more and finish them off. Also, I've found that the time to refrigerate the filling prior to rolling is closer to 2 or 3 hours.
