Maple Nut Truffles
1-1/2 Cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips
4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups Confectioner’s Sugar
¾ teaspoon Maple Flavoring
1 cup Walnuts – Chopped
- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips. Set aside to cool. In another bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Add melted chocolate and maple flavoring; beat until well blended. Chill for 15 minutes or until firm enough to handle.
- While truffle mixture is cooling, spread chopped walnuts on a baking sheet and toast in the preheated oven for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Be sure to keep a careful watch to prevent burning. Let walnuts cool.
- Shape cooled chocolate filling into 1-in. balls; roll in walnuts. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
