Microwave chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted. Stir with wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Add cream cheese; stir until cream cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Cool to room temperature. Gently stir in whipped topping. Refrigerate 2 hours or until mixture is firm enough to handle.
Scoop chocolate mixture into 1-inch balls with melon baller; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheets. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Roll in suggested coatings, working with a few truffles at a time. (Truffles do not need to be perfectly round and smooth--a slightly rough appearance is considered typical.) Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
Chocolate truffles are rolled in a variety of coatings for a sweet treat that is perfect for gift-giving or for serving on a special occasion.
Make it Easy
Roll scooped truffle mixture into 1-inch balls while coating with the toppings.
Truffle mixture softens quickly, so when rolling, only remove about 1 dozen truffles from refrigerator at a time. If truffles soften too much to roll, return to refrigerator until firm.
