Create the perfect contribution for your autumnal potluck with these Acorn Chocolate Truffles! Made with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, sandwich cookies, pretzel sticks and both white and bittersweet chocolate, these Acorn Chocolate Truffles are as tasty as they are adorable.
Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended; shape into 48 (1-inch) acorn-shaped balls. Freeze 10 min.
Meanwhile, break 24 pretzels in half; reserve for later use. Finely crush remaining pretzel pieces and whole pretzel sticks.
Cover rimmed baking sheet with wax paper. Melt white chocolate and 1 pkg. bittersweet chocolate as directed on package; mix well. Dip cream cheese balls, one at a time, into melted chocolate, turning to completely coat bottom 3/4 of each ball with chocolate. Place on prepared baking sheet. Freeze 10 min. or until chocolate is firm.
Melt remaining bittersweet chocolate. Dip uncoated (top) portion of each cream cheese ball, one at a time, into bittersweet chocolate, then into crushed pretzels; return to baking sheet. Insert 1 reserved pretzel-stick half into top of each ball for the acorn stem.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is firm.
