Nothing is quite as satisfying for dessert like an adorable truffle, and this vanilla-fudge version is sure to find a spot on your recipe rotation after you take your first bite. The best part is this recipe requires just four ingredients. Simply beat together the cocoa powder, powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract to combine, roll them around in even more cocoa powder into balls, and refrigerate until they're firm, which should take a couple of hours. It really doesn't get much easier than that! Savory and sweet, these are a beautiful-looking, crowd-pleasing treat that provides a wonderfully satisfying conclusion to any dinner party.


Unsweetened cocoa powder

2 Tbsp

Unsweetened cocoa powder

½ cup(s)

Powdered sugar (confectioner's)

1 cup(s), sifted

  1. Reserve 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder on a sheet of wax paper. In a food processor or in a medium bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, blend remaining ½ cup of cocoa powder, powdered sugar, cream cheese and vanilla extract.
  2. Drop cream cheese mixture by rounded teaspoons into reserved cocoa powder, making 24 truffles; roll into balls, and refrigerate until firm, about 1 to 2 hours. Yields 1 truffle per serving.
